The Representation Theory of the Symmetric Group provides an account of both the ordinary and modular representation theory of the symmetric groups. The range of applications of this theory is vast, varying from theoretical physics, through combinatories to the study of polynomial identity algebras; and new uses are still being found. Representation Theory of Symmetric Groups is the most up-to-date abstract algebra book on the subject of symmetric groups and representation theory. Utilizing new research and results, this book can be studied from a combinatorial, algorithmic or algebraic viewpoint. This book is an excellent way o.

The symmetric group S N, sometimes called the permutation group (but this term is often restricted to subgroups of the symmetric group), provides the mathematical language necessary for treating identical particles. The elements of the group S N are the permutations of N objects, i.e., the permutation operators we discussed above. There are N! elements in the group S N, so the order of the. the same.3 The reader can ﬁnd references to the books on the representation theory of the symmetric groups in the monograph by James and Kerber [18], in the book by James [17], which was translated into Russian, and in earlier textbooks. The key point of our approach, which explains the appearance of .

The group of all permutations (self-bijections) of a set with the operation of composition (see Permutation group).The symmetric group on a set is denoted equipotent and the groups and are isomorphic. The symmetric group of a finite set is denoted abstract group is isomorphic to a subgroup of the symmetric group of some set (Cayley's theorem). In group theory, the symmetry group of a geometric object is the group of all transformations under which the object is invariant, endowed with the group operation of composition. Such a transformation is an invertible mapping of the ambient space which takes the object to itself, and which preserves all the relevant structure of the object.

It is the only book to deal with all three aspects of this subject at once. The style of presentation is relaxed yet rigorous and the prerequisites have been kept to a minimum--undergraduate courses in. The study of the symmetric groups forms one of the basic building blocks of modern group theory.

This book is the first completely detailed and self-contained presentation of the wealth of information now known on the projective representations of the symmetric and alternating groups. Prerequisites are a basic familiarity with the elementary theory of linear representations and a modest.

The symmetric group plays a major role in the theory of linear groups. The product spaces that are symmetry adapted to the symmetric group provide a basis for the irreducible representations of the general linear and unitary groups. For any finite group, there is defined a linear algebra, a finite-dimensional vector space for which the group.
