Symmetry and characters of finite groups
Snapshots of modern mathematics from Oberwolfach
Over the last two centuries mathematicians have developed an elegant abstract framework to study the natural idea of symmetry. The aim of this snapshot is to gently guide the interested reader through these ideas. In particular, we introduce finite groups and their representations and try to indicate their central role in understanding symmetry.
