Description: First course in representation theory, with an emphasis on concrete examples, especially the symmetric group. Topics include representations of finite groups, characters, classification, symmetric functions, Young symmetrizers, and Schur-Weyl duality.

Recommended Prerequisite(s): Linear Algebra (MATH 221, MATH 354, or MATH 355) and MATH 356.
