Representations of Groups: A Computational Approach

The illustration concept of finite teams has noticeable speedy development lately with the improvement of effective algorithms and laptop algebra platforms. this is often the 1st e-book to supply an advent to the normal and modular illustration conception of finite teams with targeted emphasis at the computational points of the topic.

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

This is often the second one of 3 volumes dedicated to basic finite p-group thought. just like the 1st quantity, 1000s of significant effects are analyzed and, in lots of instances, simplified. very important subject matters offered during this monograph comprise: (a) category of p-groups all of whose cyclic subgroups of composite orders are basic, (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) type of p-groups all of whose subgroups of index p² are abelian, (h) class 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 was once a rare mathematician of significant energy and imaginative and prescient. His profound contributions to illustration conception, harmonic research, ergodic conception, and mathematical physics left a wealthy legacy for researchers that keeps at the present time. This publication relies on lectures offered at an AMS certain consultation held in January 2007 in New Orleans devoted to his reminiscence.

To this end, let e and f be two basis-maps for A, and let a and b be the corresponding 2-cocycles of G with values in l∗ , respectively. Then for σ ∈ G we have that eσ = φ(σ)fσ holds for some φ(σ) ∈ l∗ . This gives a map φ : G → l∗ defined by σ → φ(σ) that for each σ ∈ G satisfies the equality eσ = φ(σ)fσ . It is easy to check that for every σ, τ ∈ G the equality φ(σ)σ(φ(τ )) b(σ, τ ) = a(σ, τ ) φ(στ ) holds; hence, a and b are cohomologous 2-cocycles. 23 that (l, G, a) and (l, G, b) are isomorphic as k-algebras.

From this point forward we will assume the reader is familiar with the basics of group cohomology, for which we refer to Chapter 2 of [Mil11] or Chapter 4 of [CF67]. 21. Let k be a field, and let l ⊃ k be a finite Galois extension. Let a be a 2-cocycle of G with values in l∗ , and let A be the left vector space over L with basis {eσ }σ∈G for which multiplication is defined by ( ) ( ) ∑ ∑ ∑∑ xσ eσ · y τ eτ = xσ σ(yτ )a(σ, τ )eστ , σ∈G τ ∈G σ∈G τ ∈G where xσ , yτ ∈ L for σ, τ ∈ G. Then A is a central simple algebra over k that contains l as a strictly maximal subfield.

Then i=1 ⊗ D is k-algebra isomorphic to k ri=1 Di , where Di is a unique central division k-algebra up to isomorphism with ind(Di ) = pdi i and exp(Di ) = pei i for i = 1, . . , r.
