These lectures cover the classical theory of valuated fields, some recent 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.

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).

These are lectures on the symmetric group, the general linear group and invariant theory. The course covered as much of the classical theory as time allowed. The text requires some knowledge of rings and modules, character theory, affine varieties.

The purpose of these lectures is to describe a factorial correspondence between the theory of admissible representations for a complex semisimple Lie group and the theory of highest weight modules for a semisimple Lie algebra.

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.
