Categories of Symmetries and Infinite-dimensional Groups

For mathematicians working in group theory, the study of the many infinite-dimensional groups has been carried out in an individual and non-coherent way. For the first time, these apparently disparate groups have been placed together, in order to construct the `big picture'. This booksuccessfully gives an account of this - and shows how such seemingly dissimilar types such as the various groups of operators on Hilbert spaces, or current groups are shown to belong to a bigger entitity. This is a ground-breaking text will be important reading for advanced undergraduate andgraduate mathematicians.
