This volume contains a collection of papers from the Conference on Character Theory of Finite Groups, held at the Universitat de València, Spain, on June 3–5, , in honor of I. Martin Isaacs. The topics include permutation groups, character theory, \(p\)-groups, and group rings. Difference sets are of central interest in finite geometry and design theory. One of the main techniques to investigate abelian difference sets is a discrete version of the classical Fourier transform (i.e., character theory) in connection with algebraic number theory.

It is very serious (finite) group theory, with representation (and character) theory playing a huge role, and it is aimed at making converts to the cause. The book looks to be a compact and complete presentation of all the ingredients that go into a solid education for such aspiring scholars, and of course an expert account of the material. This is a clear, accessible and up to date exposition of modular representation theory of finite groups from a character-theoretic viewpoint. After a short review of the necessary background material, the early chapters introduce Brauer characters and blocks and develop their basic properties. The next three chapters study and prove Brauer's first, second and third main theorems in turn.

Mathematics Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for people studying math at any level and professionals in related fields. It only takes a minute to sign up. The statement in the book of Isaacs is wrong. It should be as follows. About a Corollary of Isaacs' “character theory of finite groups”: does the converse implication. The McKay conjecture is the origin of the counting conjectures in the representation theory of finite groups. This book gives a comprehensive introduction to these conjectures, while assuming minimal background knowledge. Character theory is explored in detail Cited by:

out of 5 stars An excellent book on character theory. Format: Paperback. This classic book offers one of the definite treatments of character theory of finite groups, written by one of the foremost experts in the field.

This book explores the classical and beautiful character theory of finite groups. It does it by using some rudiments of the language of categories. Originally emerging from two courses offered at Peking University (PKU), primarily for third-year students, it is now better suited for graduate courses, and provides broader coverage than books.

The representation theory of nite groups has a long history, going back to the 19th century and earlier. A milestone in the subject was the de nition of characters of nite groups by Frobenius in Prior to this there was some use of the ideas which we can now identify as representation theory (characters of cyclic groups as used byFile Size: 1MB.

In addition to techniques for applying characters to "pure" group theory, much of the book focuses on properties of the characters themselves and how these properties reflect and are reflected in the structure of the group. "A pleasure to read." — American Mathematical Society.

This is not a book for undergraduates (if you want one of those, check out Steinberg’s Representation Theory of Finite Groups for an approach that concentrates on the representation, or James and Liebeck’s Representations and Characters of Finite Groups for a somewhat more module-oriented look at things).

Isaacs presupposes a good. The book first elaborates on matrices, groups, and representations. Topics include abstract properties, applications, matrix groups, key theorem of representation theory, properties of character tables, simply reducible groups, tensors and invariants, and representations generated by functions.

The ATLAS of Finite Groups, often simply known as the ATLAS, is a group theory book by John Horton Conway, Robert Turner Curtis, Simon Phillips Norton, Richard Alan Parker and Robert Arnott Wilson (with computational assistance from J.

Thackray), published in December by Oxford University Press and reprinted with corrections in (ISBN ). Chapters 2{5 should be read by everybody; it covers the basic character theory of nite groups.

The rst two sections of Chapter 6 are also rec-ommended for all readers; the reader who is less comfortable with Galois theory can then skip the last section and move on to Chapter 7 on permu-i.

The topics include large transitive groups with many elements having fixed points, threads through group theory, a p-group with no normal large abelian subgroup, commutators with wreath products, problems in character theory, lifting theorems and applications to group algebras, and character degrees of normally monomial maximal class 5-groups.
