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.


  • 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.


Further literature will be announced in the lecture.
