Basic notions 15 2. Also, from the deﬁnition it is clear that it is closed under multiplication. 4 CHAPTER 1. The sets Q, R, and C are also groups with respect to the operation of addition of numbers. Basics of Group Theory9 1. Point groups 12 5. Normal subgroups11 4. Representation Theory I15 1. Characters 19 2. 1.2 Examples of groups The set of integers Z, equipped with the operation of addition, is an example of a group. 1.⁄ Show that, by requiring the existence of an identity in a group G, it is su–cient to require only a left identity, ea= a, or only a right identity ae= a, for every element ain G, since these two quantities must be equal. The current module will concentrate on the theory of groups. Preface ... group with inﬁnitely many ends, then G splits as a graph of groups with ﬁnite edge–groups. GroupTheory PUP Lucy Day version 8.8, March 2, 2008 Chapter One Introduction This monograph offers a derivation of all classical and exceptional semisimple Lie algebras through a classiﬁcation of “primitive invariants.” GROUP THEORY 3 each hi is some gﬁ or g¡1 ﬁ, is a subgroup.Clearly e (equal to the empty product, or to gﬁg¡1 if you prefer) is in it. Finally, since (h1 ¢¢¢ht)¡1 = h¡1t ¢¢¢h ¡1 1 it is also closed under taking inverses. I discuss, somewhat in the manner of a tourist guide, free groups, presentations of groups, periodic and locally ﬁnite groups, Groups de nitions9 2. There is no general theory of inﬁnite groups, and group theorists have imposed various ﬁnite-ness conditions on their groups. Non-special transformations13 Lecture 3. Subgroups 10 3. Group Theory.

For inﬁnite groups, such a focus is much more difﬁcult to obtain. 3. Lectures on Geometric Group Theory Cornelia Druţu and Michael Kapovich.

Apart permutation groups and number theory, a third occurence of group theory which is worth mentioning arose from geometry, and the work of Klein (we now use the term Klein group for one of the groups of order 4), and Lie, who studied transformation groups, that is transformations of … Conjugate classes.
