Representation Theory

Master's level | 7.5 credits | Course code: MMA201

The course is not given as a stand-alone course this academic year, but can be included in the program/course package. For information contact the department.

About the Course

Representation theory is about how groups and other algebraic structures can be realized in a concrete way as linear transformations. These methods are not only used in algebra, but also in analysis, geometry, number theory and mathematical physics. For example, representation theory is a basis of the standard model of particle physics. In the course, we will focus on representation theory for rings (module theory) and finite groups. We also introduce tensor algebra and exterior algebra, which are important in differential geometry and relativity theory.
