**Introduction to Representation Theory**

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.

**Lectures on Lie Groups and Representations of Locally Compact Groups**

by

**F. Bruhat**-

**Tata Institute of Fundamental Research**

We consider some heterogeneous topics relating to Lie groups and the general theory of representations of locally compact groups. We have rigidly adhered to the analytic approach in establishing the relations between Lie groups and Lie algebras.
