Representations of Groups: A Computational Approach

The illustration idea of finite teams has obvious quick development lately with the improvement of effective algorithms and desktop algebra platforms. this can be the 1st e-book to supply an advent to the standard and modular illustration conception of finite teams with distinct emphasis at the computational facets 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 undemanding finite p-group idea. just like the 1st quantity, hundreds and hundreds of significant effects are analyzed and, in lots of circumstances, simplified. very important subject matters awarded during this monograph comprise: (a) category of p-groups all of whose cyclic subgroups of composite orders are general, (b) category 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) type of 2-groups with precisely 4 cyclic subgroups of order 2n > 2, (f) new proofs of Blackburn's theorem on minimum nonmetacyclic teams, (g) category 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 labeled.

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

George Mackey was once a unprecedented mathematician of significant energy and imaginative and prescient. His profound contributions to illustration conception, harmonic research, ergodic idea, and mathematical physics left a wealthy legacy for researchers that maintains this present day. This publication is predicated on lectures offered at an AMS detailed consultation held in January 2007 in New Orleans devoted to his reminiscence.

PROOF. 17. 20. For the remainder of this section X denotes a uniform space. 21. REMARK. The following statements are pairwise equivalent: (1) T is weakly almost periodic; that is to say, if a is an index of X, then there exist a left syndetic subset A of T and a compact subset C of T such that x E X implies the existence of a subset B of T for which A C BC and xB Cxa. (2) If a is an index of X, then there exists a compact subset K of T such that x E X implies the existence of a subset A of T for which T = AK and xA C xa.

Is recursive at x. , is recursive at x, then S is recursive at x. Suppose Sx is recursive at x. Let U be an open neighborhood of x. , C SM- Let V be a neighborhood of x for which VM C U. , such that xA C V. Now xAM C U. Define B = S n AM. Since A C BM-\ B is a T-admissible subset of T. Also B C Sand xB C U. Thus S is recursive at x. It now follows that if T is recursive at x, then S is recursive at x. The converse is obvious. The proof is completed. 37. DEFINITION. Let T be a topological group.

The expression weakly almost periodic was introduced by Gottschalk [6]. 36) Cf. Gottschalk [2, 6, 8], Erdos and Stone [1], Gottschalk and Hedlund [5]. 38) The terms replete and extensive, as defined here, were introduced by Gottschalk and Hedlund [10]. If T is either 9 or (ft, a subset A of T is extensive if and only if A contains a sequence marching to + CD and a sequence marching to - CD. 55] The expression almost periodic, as applied to a point, is a generalization of the term recurrent as used by G.
