Lecture Description

Representation Theory: Having classified irreducibles in terms of characters, we adapt the methods of the finite abelian case to define projection operators onto irreducible types. Techniques include convolution and weighted averages of representations. At the end, we state and prove the Plancherel Formula (Parseval's Identity using irreducibles).

Course materials, including problem sets with solutions, are available at mathdoctorbob.org/UR-RepTheory.html

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.
