Finite Group Representations for the Pure Mathematician
by Peter Webb
Publisher: University of Minnesota 2007
Number of pages: 183
The book is intended to be used as a learning tool by people who do not know the subject, rather than as an encyclopaedic reference. The book's title is intended to indicate both breadth and limitations: it will probably not be very useful to most physicists or chemists, but it is intended to be appropriate for non-specialists in the area of representation theory, such as those whose primary interest is topology, combinatorics or number theory.

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.

Contents: Valuations and local fields; Smooth representations of locally compact totally disconnected groups; Haar measure, convolution, and characters of admissible representations; Induced representations - general properties; etc.

Presents the main results about modular and nonmodular varieties, equational bases and the amalgamation property in a uniform way. The text includes preliminaries that make the material accessible to anyone with basic knowledge of universal algebra.
