This book contains the author's notes for a course that he taught at ETH, Zürich. The aim is to lead the reader to a proof of the Peter-Weyl theorem, the basic theorem in the representation theory of compact topological groups.

#### Readership

General audience interested in the Peter-Weyl theorem.

#### Reviews & Endorsements

The presentation in this text is clear and to the point. The methods used are good classical ones. This is a good text for a student who knows little about locally compact groups and wants to get an introduction to some of the fundamental ideas needed to begin the study of them.
