Group theory for Maths, Physics and Chemistry

Number of pages: 93

Description:
Symmetry plays an important role in chemistry and physics, both at the macroscopic and the microscopic level. Group theory is an abstract setting capturing the symmetry in a very efficient manner, which helps to make computations more efficient. We focus on abstract group theory, deal with representations of groups by means of permutations and by means of matrices, and deal with some applications in chemistry and physics.
