MATH-314 / 5 crédits

Enseignant: Rizzoli Aluna

Langue: Anglais


Summary

Group representation theory studies the actions of groups on vector spaces. This allows the use of linear algebra to study certain group theoretical questions. In this course the groups in question will be finite and the vector spaces finite dimensional.
