# Representation Theory

*Zongzhu Lin; Jianpan Wang*

Articles in this volume cover topics related to representation theory of various algebraic objects such as algebraic groups, quantum groups, Lie algebras, (finite- and infinite-dimensional) finite groups, and quivers. Collected in one book, these articles show deep relations between all these aspects of Representation Theory, as well as the diversity of algebraic, geometric, topological, and categorical techniques used in studying representations.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in representation theory.
