Try Prime.5/5(1). Representation Theory of Finite Groups presents group representation theory at a level accessible to advanced undergraduate students and beginning graduate students.

The required background is maintained to the level of linear algebra, group theory, and very basic ring theory and avoids prerequisites in analysis and topology by dealing exclusively with finite by: it is required reading for anyone who wishes to study the subject.

—Mathematical Reviews The theory of finite simple groups enjoyed a period of spectacular activity in the s and s. The first edition of Gorenstein's book was published inat the time of some of the first major classification results/5.

The finite simple groups are the building blocks from which all the finite groups are made and as such they are objects of fundamental importance throughout mathematics/5. Applications of Finite Groups focuses on the applications of finite groups to problems of physics, including representation theory, crystals, wave equations, and nuclear and molecular structures.

"The book under review is incontrovertible proof that the theory of finite groups per se is alive and well too. is also a marvelous treatment of a large chunk of what is going on today. There are a lot of nice exercises, the scholarship is phenomenally thorough.

The entire presentation is quite elegant. "The Classification Theorem is one of the main achievements of 20th century mathematics, but its proof has not yet been completely extricated from the journal literature in which it first appeared.

This is the second volume in a series devoted to the presentation of a reorganized and simplified proof of the classification of the finite simple groups.5/5(1). Finite Groups: An Introduction is an elementary textbook on finite group theory.

Written by the eminent French mathematician Jean-Pierre Serre (a principal contributor to algebraic geometry, group theory, and number theory), this brand-new textbook is based upon a course given by Serre at l'École Normale Supérieure de Jeunes Filles, Paris in Author: Jean-Pierre Serre.

Written by a world-renowned expert, this textbook is the first to offer a comprehensive introduction to all the finite simple groups at a level accessible to students. Gives the facts about the finite simple groups and also useful insights into how to work with them, either by hand or on a computer.

For any finite group, there is defined a linear algebra, a finite-dimensional vector space for which the group supplies a basis. Finite group theory is presented in a nonalgebraic way as matrix representation theory. Select The Heisenberg–Weyl Ring in Quantum Mechanics Book chapter Full text access.

Representation Theory of Finite Groups is a five chapter text that covers the standard material of representation theory. This book starts with an overview of the basic concepts of the subject, including group characters, representation modules, and the rectangular representation.

However, I'd also recommend the relevant chapter of Gorenstein's Finite Groups, which covers Lie rings, which I believe McKay omits.

There is also Leedham-Green and McKay The Structure of Groups of Prime Power Order, but it presumes knowledge at the level of the smaller McKay book. However, it is one volume to Berkovich's SIX. The theory of finite simple groups enjoyed a period of spectacular activity in the s and s.

The first edition of Gorenstein's book was published inat the time of some of the first major classification results/5(2). Surely many readers will be inspired by this book to continue their study of the fascinating field of finite group theory.

-- Mathematical Reviews This is one serious group theory book, intended for graduate students with strong algebra backgrounds who plan to read papers on group. The finite groups of Lie type are of basic importance in the theory of groups. A classic in its field, this book presents the theories of finite groups of Lie type in a clear and accessible style, especially with regard to the main concepts of the theory and the techniques of proof used, and gives a detailed exposition of the complex representation theory.

Reviewed in the United States on Decem Format: Paperback. This is a delightful book that covers broad areas of theoretical and practical mathematics from the standpoint of Group Theory and Fourier Analysis. Although Fourier Analysis is first in the title, I think Finite Groups should come first/5(4).

Abstract Algebra: A First Course. By Dan Saracino I haven't seen any other book explaining the basic concepts of abstract algebra this beautifully.

It is divided in two parts and the first part is only about groups though. The second part is an in. Small groups of prime power order p n are given as follows: Order p: The only group is cyclic.

Order p 2: There are just two groups, both abelian. Order p 3: There are three abelian groups, and two non-abelian groups. One of the non-abelian groups is the semidirect product of a normal cyclic subgroup of order p 2 by a cyclic group of order p.

Even though representation theory and constructions of simple groups have been omitted, the text serves as a springboard for deeper study in many directions.

One who completes this text not only gains an appreciation of both the depth and the breadth of the theory of finite groups, but also witnesses the evolutionary development of concepts.

"The book is a pleasure to read. There is no question but that it will become, and deserves to be, a widely used textbook and reference." — Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society. Character theory provides a powerful tool for proving theorems about finite groups.

reading and reference will be Martin Isaacs’ Character Theory of Finite Groups. We will cover about half of the book over the course of this semester. It is (according to Professor Hermann) a readable book, so it would be appropriate for this (planned-to-be) reading course. Representation Theory of Finite Groups Professor: Dr.
