In these lectures we will start from the beginning the theory of Lie algebras and their representations. Topics covered includes: General properties of Lie algebras, Jordan-Chevalley decomposition, semisimple Lie algebras, Classification of complex semisimple Lie algebras, Cartan subalgebras, classification of connected Coxeter graphs and complex semisimple Lie algebras, Poicare-Birkhoff-Witt theorem.
