Module title:Representation Theory of Finite Groups
Module codeMTHM010
Module lecturers:Dr Henri Johnston
Module credits:15

This course is an introduction to the representation theory of finite groups. We will develop the basic theory of finite dimensional representations over the complex numbers. A key result is that such representations are completely reducible and completely determined by their characters. We will also see how characters are used to effectively calculate such decompositions. We will study many examples.

Prerequisite modules: either MTH2002 or MTH2010 and MTH2011 .
