    Group Theory
    pdf file The first version of these notes was written for a first-year graduate algebra course. As in most such courses, the notes concentrated on abstract groups and, in particular, on finite groups. However, it is not as abstract groups that most mathematicians encounter groups, but rather as algebraic groups, topological groups, or Lie groups, and it is not just the groups themselves that are of interest, but also their linear representations. It is my intention (one day) to expand the notes to take account of this, and to produce a volume that, while still modest in size (c200 pages), will provide a more comprehensive introduction to group theory for beginning graduate students in mathematics, physics, and related fields. v2.01.

    The development of group theory
    Algebra index History Topics Index
    Version for printing
    The study of the development of a concept such as that of a group has certain difficulties. It would be wrong to say that since the non-zero rationals form a group under multiplication then the origin of the group concept must go back to the beginnings of mathematics. Rather we must take the view that group theory is the abstraction of ideas that were common to a number of major areas which were being studied essentially simultaneously. The three main areas that were to give rise to group theory are:-
  • geometry at the beginning of the 19 th Century,
  • number theory at the end of the 18 th Century,
  • the theory of algebraic equations at the end of the 18 th Century leading to the study of permutations.
    (1) Geometry has been studied for a very long time so it is reasonable to ask what happened to geometry at the beginning of the 19 th Century that was to contribute to the rise of the group concept. Geometry had began to lose its 'metric' character with projective and non-euclidean geometries being studied. Also the movement to study geometry in n dimensions led to an abstraction in geometry itself. The difference between metric and incidence geometry comes from the work of Monge , his student Carnot and perhaps most importantly the work of Poncelet . Non-euclidean geometry was studied by Lambert Gauss Lobachevsky Bolyai among others.

    20: Group Theory and Generalizations
    Group theory can be considered the study of symmetry: the collection of symmetries of some object preserving some of its structure forms a group; in some sense all groups arise this way. Formally, a group is a set G on which there is a multiplication '*' defined, satisfying the associative law. In addition, there is to be an element '1' in G with 1*g=g*1=g for every g in G; and every element g in G must have an inverse h satisfying g*h=h*g=1. A particularly important class of groups is the set of permutation groups, those in which the elements are permutations of some set, and the group operation is simply composition. For example, the symmetric group on N objects is the set of all N! rearrangements of the N elements. Other important examples include the alternating groups and the Mathieu groups. In some sense, every group is a permutation group, but interesting questions arise in relation to the action on the set. For example, one considers groups which are highly transitive (they include enough symmetries to permute many large subsets), or groups which preserve additional structure of the set being permuted (angles in space, for example). Many combinatorial questions can be reduced to questions about the symmetric group; even the Rubik's cube can be viewed as a puzzle concerning a particular permutation group.

    Overview The theory group brings together researchers in many areas of mathematics and physics to develop novel approaches to problems in computer science and information technology. Among the areas of expertise we have are statistical physics, probability theory, combinatorics, geometry and topology, theoretical computer science, and algorithms. The problems on which we are focusing can be broadly classified in four areas:
    • phase transitions, alternative models of computation combinatorics and graph theory, and theory of algorithms and theoretical computer science.
    Phase Transitions: Combinatorics and Graph Theory . In addition to the more novel efforts of the group, we also do a substantial amount of work on more traditional combinatorics, including graph theory, extremal combinatorics, random graphs, and enumeration. Probabilistic methods play a central role, including advanced probabilistic techniques like high concentration, nibble methods, and Markov chains. Interactions with classical mathematical disciplines like algebra and geometry are explored. These studies provide the theoretical foundations for the application of combinatorial methods in the analysis of algorithms and complexity theory. They also are closely tied with the theory of phase transitions.

    Symmetry in Chemistry - Group Theory
    Group Theory is one of the most powerful mathematical tools used in Quantum Chemistry and Spectroscopy. It allows the user to predict, interpret, rationalize, and often simplify complex theory and data. At its heart is the fact that the Set of Operations associated with the Symmetry Elements of a molecule constitute a mathematical set called a Group . This allows the application of the mathematical theorems associated with such groups to the Symmetry Operations All Symmetry Operations associated with isolated molecules can be characterized as Rotations:
      (a) Proper Rotations : C n k ; k = 1,......, n
      When k = n, C n k = E, the Identity Operation
      n indicates a rotation of 360/n where n = 1,....
      (b) Improper Rotations : S n k , k = 1,....., n
      When k = 1, n = 1 S n k = s , Reflection Operation
      When k = 1, n = 2 S n k = i , Inversion Operation
    In general practice we distinguish Five types of operation:
      (i) E , Identity Operation
      (ii) C n k , Proper Rotation about an axis

    Context for Higher Dimensional Group Theory
    This is a diagram of the historical develpment of notions of higher dimensional algebra, from the background to group theory to Pursuing Stacks. (October 19, 2006) Comments on Higher Dimensional Group Theory (this is extracted from the previous pages) `Out of Line' Link to pdf and html files of a new version of a presentation as a Friday Evening Discourse to the Royal Insititution of Great Britain in May, 1992. The title refers both to the area being non traditional and to the idea of higher dimensional algebra. Bibiliography
    I thought of the idea of Higher Dimensional Group Theory in the mid 1960s and saw it as a method for obtaining new homotopical information by generalising to higher dimensions the fundamental group of a space with base point. Such a programme was put forward by Dehn, and by Cech in 1932, but the idea was thought to have been killed by the discovery that a natural analogue in higher dimensions of the fundamental group, the higher homotopy groups, were commutative. It was shown that a set with two group structures satisfying a natural compatability condition known as the interchange law was in fact simply a commutative group, and the two group structures coincided. Thus the higher homotopy groups are analogous to but do not generalise the fundamental group. It was on this ground that Cech's paper for the 1932 Zurich ICM was famously rejected by Alexandroff and Hopf, so that only a small paragraph by Cech appeared in the Proceedings. No method was seen at that time of bringing non commutative structures successfully into higher dimensional homotopy theory.

    What is Schur?
    Schur is a stand alone C program for interactively calculating properties of Lie groups and symmetric functions. Schur has been designed to answer questions of relevance to a wide range of problems of special interest to chemists, mathematicians and physicists - particularly for persons who need specific knowledge relating to some aspect of Lie groups or symmetric functions and yet do not wish to be encumbered with complex algorithms. The objective of Schur is to supply results with the complexity of the algorithms hidden from view so that the user can effectively use Schur as a scratch pad, obtaining a result and then using that result to derive new results in a fully interactive manner. Schur can be used as a tool for calculating branching rules
