Lectures on Representation Theory and Invariant Theory
by William Crawley-Boevey
Publisher: University of Leeds 1990
Number of pages: 77
These are the notes for a lecture course on the symmetric group, the general linear group and invariant theory. The aim of the course was to cover as much of the beautiful classical theory as time allowed. The result is a text which requires no previous knowledge beyond a smattering of rings and modules, character theory, and affine varieties.

Presents the main results about modular and nonmodular varieties, equational bases and the amalgamation property in a uniform way. The text includes preliminaries that make the material accessible to anyone with basic knowledge of universal algebra.
by Peter Webb - University of Minnesota
The book is intended to be used as a learning tool by people who do not know the subject. It is intended to be appropriate for non-specialists in the area of representation theory, such as those whose primary interest is topology or combinatorics.
by Fiona Murnaghan - University of Toronto
Contents: Representation Theory of Groups - Algebraic Foundations; Representations of Finite Groups; Representations of SL2(Fq); Representations of Finite Groups of Lie Type; Topological Groups, Representations, and Haar Measure; etc.

Representation theory studies symmetry in linear spaces. It is a beautiful mathematical subject which has many applications, ranging from number theory and combinatorics to geometry, probability theory, quantum mechanics and quantum field theory.
