Representations of Groups: A Computational Approach

The illustration conception of finite teams has obvious speedy development in recent times with the improvement of effective algorithms and desktop algebra structures. this is often the 1st e-book to supply an creation to the normal and modular illustration idea of finite teams with distinctive emphasis at the computational facets of the topic.

Groups of Prime Power Order Volume 2 (De Gruyter Expositions in Mathematics)

This can be the second one of 3 volumes dedicated to undemanding finite p-group concept. just like the 1st quantity, thousands of vital effects are analyzed and, in lots of circumstances, simplified. vital themes offered during this monograph comprise: (a) class of p-groups all of whose cyclic subgroups of composite orders are general, (b) type of 2-groups with precisely 3 involutions, (c) proofs of Ward's theorem on quaternion-free teams, (d) 2-groups with small centralizers of an involution, (e) class of 2-groups with precisely 4 cyclic subgroups of order 2n > 2, (f) new proofs of Blackburn's theorem on minimum nonmetacyclic teams, (g) class of p-groups all of whose subgroups of index p² are abelian, (h) category of 2-groups all of whose minimum nonabelian subgroups have order eight, (i) p-groups with cyclic subgroups of index p² are categorized.

Group Representations, Ergodic Theory, and Mathematical Physics: A Tribute to George W. Mackey

George Mackey used to be a unprecedented mathematician of serious energy and imaginative and prescient. His profound contributions to illustration concept, harmonic research, ergodic idea, and mathematical physics left a wealthy legacy for researchers that keeps this day. This e-book is predicated on lectures provided at an AMS unique consultation held in January 2007 in New Orleans devoted to his reminiscence.

3 There is a natural isomorphism d Hom of n -modules, n for every left n⊗ M M -module M. 2. 10]. 4 There is a natural isomorphism indn M for every finite dimensional Proof The functor indn Hence it is isomorphic to Hom indn d M -module M. -mod → n -mod is right adjoint to resn . n ? by uniqueness of adjoint functors. 3 (with swapped and d replaced by d−1 ). 8 Intertwining elements We will need certain elements of i < n, define i n which go back Cherednik. 22) means that for every w ∈ Sn we obtain a well-defined element w ∈ n , namely, w = i1 im where w = si1 sim is any reduced expression for w.

If is such an orbit we set = a for any a ∈ . Now let M be a finite dimensional n -module and ∈ F n /∼. We let M denote the generalized eigenspace of M over Z n that corresponds to the central character , that is M = v∈M z− z k v = 0 for all z ∈ Z n and k 0 First results on 38 n -modules Observe this is an n -submodule of M. Now, for any a ∈ F n with a ∈ , · · · L an via the central character . 1. decomposes as M= M ∈F n /∼ as an n -module. 2 shows that every such central character does arise in some finite dimensional n -module.

To see that L a Frobenius reciprocity and the fact just proved that L an is irreducible. (ii) The fact that all composition factors of resn L an are isomorphic · · · L a r follows by formal characters and (i). To see that to L a 1 n n ⊗ L of res L an soc res L a is irreducible, note that the submodule · · · L a l . This module is irreducible, and so it is isomorphic to L a 1 -submodule is contained in the socle. Conversely, let M be an irreducible n of L a . 1 as in the proof of (i), we see that M must ⊗ L.
