Lecture Description

Representation Theory of Finite Groups: We compute the character tables of S5, the symmetric group on 5 letters, and A5, the subgroup of even permutations. We note that A5 is isomorphic to the group of rigid motions of an icosahedron.

Course Description

Doctor Bob provides 18 short video lectures on the introduction to representation theory. Group representations are where group theory meets linear algebra, and important applications arise in various math subjects (number theory, analysis, algebraic geometry), physics, and chemistry.

We consider the basic representation theory of finite groups. Goals include a look at Fourier series/analysis using groups and elementary character theory.
