Prerequisites

Basic notions of algebra, topology, and analysis suffice for the core part of the course.

Description

The goal of the course is to give an overview of representation theory. It is intended for an audience with diverse mathematical interests. The subject is a blend of algebra, analysis, and geometry. All these different points of view are presented in the course. The case of finite groups is basic and I will discuss it in some detail as an example.
