Lecture Description

Representation Theory of Finite Groups: As a first step to Fourier analysis on finite groups, we state and prove the Schur Orthogonality Relations. With these relations, we may form an orthonormal basis of matrix coefficients for L^(G), the set of functions on G. We also define characters and state the corresponding SORs.

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.
