Representation Theory and Harmonic Analysis of Wreath Products of Finite Groups, Paperback / softback Book


This book presents an introduction to the representation theory of wreath products of finite groups and harmonic analysis on the corresponding homogeneous spaces.

The reader will find a detailed description of the theory of induced representations and Clifford theory, focusing on a general formulation of the little group method.

This provides essential tools for the determination of all irreducible representations of wreath products of finite groups.

The exposition also includes a detailed harmonic analysis of the finite lamplighter groups, the hyperoctahedral groups, and the wreath product of two symmetric groups.

This relies on the generalised Johnson scheme, a new construction of finite Gelfand pairs.

The exposition is completely self-contained and accessible to anyone with a basic knowledge of representation theory.

Plenty of worked examples and several exercises are provided, making this volume an ideal textbook for graduate students.

It also represents a useful reference for more experienced researchers.
