By Benjamin Steinberg

This ebook is meant to give crew illustration idea at a degree obtainable to mature undergraduate scholars and starting graduate scholars. this can be completed via customarily protecting the mandatory heritage to the extent of undergraduate linear algebra, team concept and intensely easy ring thought. Module thought and Wedderburn idea, in addition to tensor items, are intentionally shunned. in its place, we take an procedure in response to discrete Fourier research. purposes to the spectral conception of graphs are given to assist the coed delight in the usefulness of the topic. a few workouts are incorporated. This e-book is meant for a 3rd/4th undergraduate path or an introductory graduate path on team illustration thought. despite the fact that, it might even be used as a reference for employees in all parts of arithmetic and data.

Proposition 7. 1. eleven. enable σ: G→S X be a gaggle motion. Then the equality holds. for this reason |Fix 2(g)| = |Fix (g)|2. evidence. permit (x, y) ∈ X ×X. Then σg2(x, y) = (σg(x), σg(y)) and so (x, y) = σg2(x, y) if and provided that σg(x) = x and σg(y) = y. We finish Fix2(g) = Fix(g) ×Fix(g). 7. 2 Permutation Representations Given a bunch motion σ: G→Sn, we could compose it with the traditional illustration to acquire a illustration of G. allow us to formalize this. Definition 7. 2. 1 (Permutation representation). permit σ: G→SX be a gaggle motion. outline a illustration by means of environment One calls the permutation illustration linked to σ. Remark 7. 2. 2. detect that's the linear extension of the map outlined at the foundation X of via sending x to σg(x). additionally, realize that the measure of the illustration is equal to the measure of the crowd motion σ. Example 7. 2. three (Regular representation). allow λ: G→SG be the normal motion. Then one has , the standard illustration. the subsequent proposition is proved precisely as in terms of the general illustration (cf. Proposition 4. four. 2), so we forget the evidence. Proposition 7. 2. four. allow σ: G→S X be a bunch motion. Then the permutation illustration is a unitary illustration of G. subsequent we compute the nature of . Proposition 7. 2. five. enable σ: G→S X be a bunch motion. Then evidence. enable X = { x1, …, xn} and allow be the matrix of with admire to this foundation. Then , so particularly, and so . just like the average illustration, permutation representations are by no means irreducible (if | X | > 1). to appreciate higher the way it decomposes, we first ponder the trivial part. Definition 7. 2. 6 (Fixed subspace). allow ϕ: G→GL(V ) be a illustration. Then is the fastened subspace of G. One simply verifies that VG is a G-invariant subspace and the subrepresentation is akin to dimVG copies of the trivial illustration. allow us to end up that VG is the direct sum of the entire copies of the trivial illustration in ϕ. Proposition 7. 2. 7. enable ϕ: G→GL(V ) be a illustration and enable χ 1 be the trivial personality of G. Then ⟨χ ϕ ,χ 1 ⟩ = dim VG. evidence. Write V = m1V1 ⊕ ⋯ ⊕ msVs the place V1, …, Vs are irreducible G-invariant subspaces whose linked subrepresentations variety over the designated equivalence periods of irreducible representations of G (we enable mi = 0). with no lack of generality, we may possibly imagine that V1 is resembling the trivial illustration. allow ϕ(i) be the limit of ϕ to Vi. Now if v ∈ V , then with the vi ∈ miVi and and so g ∈ VG if and provided that vi ∈ miViG for all 2 ≤ i ≤ s. In different phrases, allow i ≥ 2. on the grounds that Vi is irreducible and never corresponding to the trivial illustration and ViG is G-invariant, it follows ViG = 0. therefore VG = m1V1 and so the multiplicity of the trivial illustration in ϕ is dimVG, as required. Now we compute once we have a permutation illustration. Proposition 7. 2. eight. permit σ: G→S X be a bunch motion. permit be the orbits of G on X and outline . Then v 1 ,…,v m is a foundation for and for this reason is the variety of orbits of G on X. facts. First detect that as is obvious through surroundings y = σg(x) and utilizing that σg permutes the orbit .
