Lectures on Representation Theory and Invariant Theory
by

Publisher: University of Leeds
Number of pages: 77

Description:
These are the notes for a lecture course on the symmetric group, the general linear group and invariant theory. The aim of the course was to cover as much of the beautiful classical theory as time allowed. The result is a text which requires no previous knowledge beyond a smattering of rings and modules, character theory, and affine varieties.
