The class meeting will be MWF at noon in 153 Sloan. If the room is
taken by other seminar or meeting, we will meet at 257 Sloan instead. 

Ma145a is
the first in a 2 course sequence on theory of representations. In the
fall quarter, we will cover representations of finite groups, including
the general theory of finite group representations, the representations
of symmetric groups, Mackey's formula and Artin's and Brauer's theorems
with their application. This course is succeeded in the Winter quarter by
M145b, which will cover representations of compact groups.
Prerequisites: Knowledge of basic abstract algebra and linear algebra


Grading: Homework will be assigned weekly.
