## Math 517B - Group Theory II

Spring 2019 - Section 1

Schedule: Mo 2 PM to 3 PM and Fr 1.30 pm to 3 PM ENR2 S395.
(except 25th of January an 1st of February, on thise 2 days
we meet from 11 AM to 12.15 PM).
**Instructor:** K. Lux

- Office: ENR2 S335
- Office Hours: Mo 3 p.m. - 4.30 p.m. and Th 1.45 p.m. - 3.15 p.m. S335 in ENR2

**Main Texts: L. Grove, "Groups and Characters" , Lux, Pahlings,
"Representation Theory of Finite Groups (a computational approach)".**

In the second semester of this one year long course,, we will study
the algorithmic aspects in
group and representation theory.
The relevant chapters of Lux, Pahlings "representation theory of finite groups"
will be made available in the form of pdf files free of charge.
Moreover, we might also use the unpublished
manusscript Computational Modular Character Theory
by G. Hiss, C. Jansen, K. Lux, and R. Parker. Finally, we will use the
computer algebra system GAP to get hands-on experience with the computational
techniques outlined in class.
