Available for the first time in published form, Groups and Geometry presents the Oxford Mathematical Institute notes for undergraduates and first year postgraduates. The content is guided by the Oxford syllabus but includes much more material than is included on the syllabus. This book isabout the measurement of symmetry: covering groups and geometry with the symbiotic relationship between the two more than justifying the union. A number of exercises are included in this sylish text to help the reader gain a full understanding of this branch of mathematics.
Peter M. Neumann is at The Queen's College, Oxford. Gabrielle A. Stoy is at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford. Edward C. Thompson is at Jesus College, Oxford.

Editorial Reviews

`delightful book ... The group theory is directed towards group actions, but all the basic material is there.'Mathematika, 41 (1994)
