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

This entry collects material related to the textbook:

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.
