Finite group theory

Over the past 30 years the speculation of finite teams has constructed dramatically. Our figuring out of finite easy teams has been improved through their class. many questions on arbitrary teams might be diminished to related questions about uncomplicated teams and functions of the speculation are starting to seem in different branches of arithmetic.

Let W be a representation of a Lie group G. Deﬁne Vn (W ) to be the space of holomorphic polynomials on W that are homogeneous of degree n and let (g P) (η) = P(g −1 η). Show that there is an equivalence of representations S n (W ∗ ) ∼ = Vn (W ) induced by viewing T1 · · · Tn , Ti ∈ W ∗ , as a function on W . 18 (a) Show that the map π : t → 1 t 0 1 produces a representation of R on C2 . (b) Show that this representation is not unitary. (c) Find all invariant submodules. (b) Show that the representation is reducible and yet not completely reducible.

Ym ) in Rm and u ∈ R, let (x, y, u) = (x1 , . . , xm , y1 , . . , ym , u) ∈ Rn . In particular, (x, y, u) = 12 (x −i y, i(x −i y), 0)+ 1 (x +i y, −i(x +i y), 0) + (0, 0, u). 35) 1 (x − i y) − 2ι(x + i y) + (−1)deg m iu . 36. For n even, the half-spin representations S ± of Spinn (R) are irreducible. For n odd, the spin representation S of Spinn (R) is irreducible. 3 Examples of Irreducibility 45 Proof. Using the standard basis {e j }nj=1 , calculate (e j ± ie j+m )(ek ± iek+m ) = e j ek ± i(e j ek+m + e j+m ek ) − e j+m ek+m for 1 ≤ j, k ≤ m.

Namely, if a group G acts on a space M, then G can be made to act on the space of functions on M (or various generalizations of functions). Begin with the standard two-dimensional representation of SU (2) on C2 where gη is simply left multiplication of matrices for g ∈ SU (2) and η ∈ C2 . Let Vn (C2 ) be the vector space of holomorphic polynomials on C2 that are homogeneous of degree n. A basis for Vn (C2 ) is given by {z 1k z 2n−k | 0 ≤ k ≤ n}, so dim Vn (C2 ) = n + 1. Deﬁne an action of SU (2) on Vn (C2 ) by setting (g · P)(η) = P(g −1 η) for g ∈ SU (2), P ∈ Vn (C2 ), and η ∈ C2 .
