    This graduate-level text provides a thorough grounding in the representation theory of finite groups over fields and rings. The book provides a balanced and comprehensive account of the subject, detailing the methods needed to analyze representations that arise in many areas of mathematics. Key topics include the construction and use of character tables, the role of induction and restriction. Group captures the symmetry in a very efficient manner. We focus on abstract group theory, deal with representations of groups, and deal with some applications in chemistry and physics.

    In this book I have tried to overcome this problem by making my central aim the determination of all possible groups of orders 1 to 15, together with some study of their structure. By the time this aim is realised towards the end of the book, the reader should have .   I love the Visual Group Theory (VGT) approach of introducing the concept of a group first using the Rubik's cube, and then Cayley diagrams, the latter of which is a .

This textbook for advanced courses in group theory focuses on finite groups, with emphasis on the idea of group actions. Early chapters summarize presupposed facts, identify important themes, and establish the notation used throughout the by: The theory of groups of finite order may be said to date from the time of Cauchy.

To him are due the first attempts at classification with a view to forming a theory from a number of isolated facts.

By Dan Saracino I haven't seen any other book explaining the basic concepts of abstract algebra this beautifully.

It is divided in two parts and the first part is only about groups though. The second part is an in. This textbook for advanced courses in group theory focuses on finite groups, with emphasis on the idea of group actions.

Early chapters summarize presupposed facts, identify important themes, and establish the notation used throughout the book. Subsequent chapters explore the normal and arithmetical structures of groups as well as applications.

than ordinary character theory to be understood. This book is written for students who are studying nite group representation theory beyond the level of a rst course in abstract algebra.

It has arisen out of notes for courses given at the second-year graduate level at the University of Minnesota. My aim has been to write the book for the Size: 1MB. A great cheap book in Dover paperback for graduate students is John Rose's A Course In Group Theory.

This was one of the first books to extensively couch group theory in the language of group actions and it's still one of the best to do that.

It covers everything in group. The group theory in the Open University course M is covered in nine of the first ten chapters. The explanations are clear, if sometimes a little too concise. If you are doing OU M, you will find this book a good match, as it takes a very similar approach, with a slightly different perspective which can help in understanding the by: A Course in the Theory of Groups is a comprehensive introduction to the theory of groups - finite and infinite, commutative and non-commutative.

Presupposing only a basic knowledge of modern algebra, it introduces the reader to the different branches of group theory and to its principal accomplishments.

While stressing the unity of group theory, the book also draws attention to connections 4/5(3). A Course in the Theory of Groups is a comprehensive introduction to the theory of groups - finite and infinite, commutative and non-commutative.

The goal of this book is to present several central topics in geometric group theory, primarily related to the large scale geometry of infinite groups and spaces on which such groups act, and to illustrate them with fundamental theorems such as Gromov’s Theorem on groups of polynomial growth.

The first 10 chapters of this book cover basic group theory (as much as expected in a graduate course). The last 10 chapters are devoted to advanced group theory. Here, one studies transfers, extenstion theory, representation- and character theory among many other things.

There is a book titled "Group theory and Physics" by Sternberg that covers the basics, including crystal groups, Lie groups, representations.

I think it's a good introduction to the topic. To quote a review on Amazon (albeit the only one): "This book is an excellent introduction to the use of group theory in physics, especially in crystallography, special relativity and particle physics. This is one of over 2, courses on OCW.
