# Representations of Finite Groups

A publication of Hindustan Book Agency

This book serves several purposes. The first and foremost is to
give an elementary introduction to the basic concepts of the theory of ordinary
representations to finite groups with a minimum of prerequisites.

The second purpose, which is also the main theme of this
exposition, is to be able to do the theory rather explicitly for the
important special case of the symmetric groups \(S_n\) of
permutations on \(n\) letters.

The third purpose is to use the preparatory material of the first
two parts, coupled with the \(S_n\) theory, to do the same for
some other important special groups, namely, the alternating group
\(A_n\) and the hyperoctahedral groups \(B_n\) and
\(D_n\).
