Contents

Reflection groups are omnipresent in Mathematics. We concentrate on finite reflection groups over a field of characteristic zero and their
  • central examples (including symmetrical groups),
  • structural theory,
  • representation theory.

Literature

  • J. E. Humphreys: Reflection groups and Coxeter groups,
  • G. D. James: The representation theory of the symmetric groups,
  • M. Broué: Introduction to complex reflection groups and their braid groups.

Materials

Further literature will be announced in the lecture.

Registration

Registration for the exercise classes via the online administration system URM (https://urm.mathematik.uni-kl.de).
