by Pavel Etingof, at al.

**Publisher**: MIT 2009**Number of pages**: 99

**Description**:

Very roughly speaking, representation theory studies symmetry in linear spaces. It is a beautiful mathematical subject which has many applications, ranging from number theory and combinatorics to geometry, probability theory, quantum mechanics and quantum field theory.
