**Finite Group Representations for the Pure Mathematician**

by Peter Webb

**Publisher**: University of Minnesota 2007**Number of pages**: 183

**Description**:

The book is intended to be used as a learning tool by people who do not know the subject, rather than as an encyclopaedic reference. The book's title is intended to indicate both breadth and limitations: it will probably not be very useful to most physicists or chemists, but it is intended to be appropriate for non-specialists in the area of representation theory, such as those whose primary interest is topology, combinatorics or number theory.

**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.
