This book is an introduction to symmetry in physics based on discrete and continuous groups. No knowledge of algebra is assumed and the book is suitable for both beginning and advanced graduate students. In fact, at Imperial College, the notes on which this book is based have been thoroughly tested in the classroom by two lecturers with quite different backgrounds (condensed matter theory and field theory) to classes composed of third- and fourth-year undergraduate students as well as students from the MSc in Quantum Fields and Fundamental Forces program. Abundant exercises, all with detailed solutions that are available in a separate instructor's manual, are included to illustrate the concepts introduced in the main text, to extend some of the main results, and to introduce new ideas. One of the main themes in the book is the application of group theory to physical problems.
