  • José de Azcárraga, José M. Izquierdo,

    Lie Groups, Lie Algebras, Cohomology and Some Applications in Physics ,

    Cambridge monographs of mathematical physics, (1995)

on Lie groups, Lie algebras, Lie algebra cohomology and applications to physics, such as to the definition of the nonrelativistic particle regarded as a 1d WZW model and more generally to the definition of super p-brane sigma-models as higher WZW models associated with the “brane scan” exceptional cocycles of super Minkowski spacetimes.
