Lectures on Representation Theory and Invariant Theory
by William Crawley-Boevey
Publisher: University of Leeds 1990
Number of pages: 77
These are the notes for a lecture course on the symmetric group, the general linear group and invariant theory. The aim of the course was to cover as much of the beautiful classical theory as time allowed. The result is a text which requires no previous knowledge beyond a smattering of rings and modules, character theory, and affine varieties.

These are lecture notes for a one semester introductory course I gave at Indiana University. The goal was to make this exposition as clear and elementary as possible. A particular emphasis is given on examples involving SU(1,1).

The text covers the classical theory of valuated fields, results about representations of classical groups over a locally compact valuated field, and Dwork's proof of the rationality of the zeta function of an algebraic variety over a finite field.
