**Description**:

These lecture notes in Lie Groups are designed for a 1-semester third year or graduate course in mathematics, physics, engineering, chemistry or biology. We give both physical and medical examples of Lie groups. The only necessary background for comprehensive reading of these notes are advanced calculus and linear algebra.
