This is a comprehensive introduction to the modular representation theory of finite groups, with an emphasis on block theory. The two volumes take into account classical results and concepts as well as some of the modern developments in the area. Volume. This book discusses as well permutation groups and the connection between group theory and geometry. The final chapter deals with finite solvable groups as well as the theory of formations. This book is a valuable resource for mathematicians, graduate students, and research workers.

About 60 years ago, R. Brauer introduced "block theory"; his purpose was to study the group algebra kG of a finite group G over a field k of nonzero characteristic p: any indecomposable two-sided ideal that also is a direct summand of kG determines a G-block.

In Volume 2, blocks of finite group algebras over complete p-local rings take centre stage, and many key results which have not appeared in a book before are treated in detail.

In order to illustrate the wide range of techniques in block theory, the book concludes with chapters classifying the source algebras of blocks with cyclic and Klein Cited by: This is a comprehensive introduction to the modular representation theory of finite groups, with an emphasis on block theory.

Find books. This book is a unique survey of the whole field of modular representation theory of finite groups. The main topics are block theory and module theory of group representations, including blocks with cyclic defect groups, symmetric groups, groups of Lie type, local-global : Springer International Publishing.

This book provides an accessible introduction to the state of the art of representation theory of finite groups. Starting from a basic level that is summarized at the start, the book proceeds to cover topics of current research interest, including open problems and conjectures.

Character theory is a powerful tool for understanding finite groups. In particular, the theory has been a key ingredient in the classification of finite simple groups. Characters are also of interest in their own right, and their properties are closely related to properties of the structure of the underlying group.

Theory of Finite Simple Groups This book provides the ﬁrst representation theoretic and algorithmic approach to the theory of abstract ﬁnite simple groups. Together with the cyclic groups of prime order the ﬁnite simple groups are the building blocks of all ﬁnite groups.

After a short review of the necessary background material, the early chapters introduce Brauer characters and blocks. The finite simple groups can be seen as the basic building blocks of all finite groups, in a way reminiscent of the way the prime numbers are the basic building blocks of the natural numbers.

"The book under review is incontrovertible proof that the theory of finite groups per se is alive and well too.

is also a marvelous treatment of a large chunk of what is going on today. There are a lot of nice exercises, the scholarship is phenomenally thorough. The entire presentation is quite elegant.

Cited by: Character theory of finite groups I. Martin Isaacs In addition to techniques for applying characters to "pure" group theory, much of the book focuses on properties of the characters themselves and how these properties reflect and are reflected in the structure of the group. Problems follow each chapter.

In mathematics, the classification of the finite simple groups is a theorem stating that every finite simple group is either cyclic, or alternating, or it belongs to a broad infinite class called the groups of Lie type, or else it is one of twenty-six or twenty-seven exceptions, called sporadic.

Group theory is central to many areas of pure and applied mathematics and the classification. Even though representation theory and constructions of simple groups have been omitted, the text serves as a springboard for deeper study in many directions.

One who completes this text not only gains an appreciation of both the depth and the breadth of the theory of finite groups, but also witnesses the evolutionary development of concepts.

Graduate students and researchers in modular representation theory, especially block theory, will find this systematic introduction indispensable.
