  • Group representation
    In the mathematical field of representation theory, group representations describe abstract groups in terms of linear transformations of vector spaces; in particular, they can be used to represent group elements as matrices so that the group operation can be represented by matrix multiplication.
  • Representation theory
    Representation theory is a branch of mathematics that studies abstract algebraic structures by representing their elements as linear transformations of vector spaces, and studies modules over these abstract algebraic structures.
  • Semisimple module
    In mathematics, especially in the area of abstract algebra known as module theory, a semisimple module or completely reducible module is a type of module that can be understood easily from its parts.
  • Clebsch–Gordan coefficients
    In physics, the Clebsch–Gordan (CG) coefficients are numbers that arise in angular momentum coupling in quantum mechanics.
  • Young tableau
    In mathematics, a Young tableau (pl.: tableaux) is a combinatorial object useful in representation theory and Schubert calculus.
  • Restricted representation
    In mathematics, restriction is a fundamental construction in representation theory of groups.
  • List of representation theory topics
    This is a list of representation theory topics, by Wikipedia page.
  • Crystal base
    In algebra, a crystal base or canonical base is a base of a representation, such that generators of a quantum group or semisimple Lie algebra have a particularly simple action on it.
  • Freudenthal magic square
    In mathematics, the Freudenthal magic square (or Freudenthal–Tits magic square) is a construction relating several Lie algebras (and their associated Lie groups).
  • Projective representation
    In the field of representation theory in mathematics, a projective representation of a group G on a vector space V over a field F is a group homomorphism from G to the projective linear group PGL(V, F) = GL(V, F) / F∗, where GL(V, F) is the general linear group of invertible linear transformations of V over F and F∗ is the normal subgroup consisting of multiplications of vectors in V by nonzero elements of F (that is, scalar multiples of the identity; scalar transformations).
  • Irreducible representation
    In mathematics, specifically in the representation theory of groups and algebras, an irreducible representation or irrep of an algebraic structure is a nonzero representation that has no proper subrepresentation closed under the action of .
  • Schubert variety
    In algebraic geometry, a Schubert variety is a certain subvariety of a Grassmannian, usually with singular points.
  • Oscillator representation
    In mathematics, the oscillator representation is a projective unitary representation of the symplectic group, first investigated by Irving Segal, David Shale, and André Weil.
