Lecture Description

Representation Theory: We apply character theory to tensor products. We obtain a character formula for general tensor products and, as special cases, alternating and symmetric 2-tensors. As an application, we compute the character table for S4, the symmetric group on 4 letters.

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.
