A concise and systematic advent to the idea of compact hooked up Lie teams and their representations, in addition to a whole presentation of the constitution and category concept. It makes use of a non-traditional technique and association. there's a stability among, and a normal mix of, the algebraic and geometric facets of Lie conception, not just in technical proofs but in addition in conceptual viewpoints.
Those notes are in keeping with a chain of seminar lectures given through the 1951 Spring time period on the Institute for complicated research. as a result of barriers of time in basic terms specific themes have been thought of, and there's no declare to completeness. because it is meant to post later a extra entire remedy of. the topic, reviews approximately those notes in addition to suggcstions in regards to the desirabili ty of including comparable subject matters might be favored and will be addressed to the writer on the Hebrew college, Jerusalem, Israel.
We're all accustomed to the standard concept of two-sided symmetry, as seen for instance within the exterior kind of the human physique. yet in its broadest interpretation symmetry is a estate which comprises regularity and repetition. during this feel symmetry are available in every single place, particularly in technological know-how and artwork.

20 EXERCISES 1. Show that the left and right representations f and r of a group G (in any LP(G) space) are equivalent. ) 2. Let it be a unitary representation of a group G. Show that 7r and is are equivalent. '---s (v f . ) 3. If it and rr' are two representations of the same group G (acting in respective Hilbert spaces H and H'), show that the matrix coefficients of rr ® rC' and (e. ) of H' 3 of H 0 H' ) are products of matrix coefficients of it and rr' (Kronecker product of matrices). 4. Let 1n denote the identity representation of a group G in dimension n ( the space of this identity representation is thus an and In (s) = idan for every s E G) .
Proof. 3) above. To see that ii) ==> iii) it is enough to remember that a closed subgroup of a Lie group is a Lie group, and to apply this result to the real Lie group Un((E) (also observe that since G is compact, any continuous injective map G - Un(T) is a homeomorphism into). In this case, one could even see that G is an algebraic group. Finally, the implication iii) - i) is known classically. In our case, we can use the exponential map Mn(]R) -- Gln(R) , A *-* exp(A) = L An/n! n>0 This map is a local diffeomorphism in the neighbourhood of 0 E Mn(R): there exists a neighbourhood V of the zero matrix of Dn(]R) for which e x p : V - - + exp(V) (this is a neighbourhood of In in Gln(R) ).
In which case G is a profinite group. The reader will certainly have understood that we can obtain many variations on this theme... 2) above. Start with a continuous function f e C(G) and a positive e > 0. Choose an open symmetric neighbourhood U of the neutral element of G such that y1x EU )f (Y) - f(x)I < E (f is uniformly continuous on the compact group G). Take then a continuous function Y on G such that '=4 0 , Supp (p) C U , , dy = SG 1 T (Y) Thus we can write f (x) f f (x) = y (y lx) dy G and coming back to the operator K L2(G) - L2(G) with kernel k(x,y) : = 4 (ylx), we see that Kf(x) = fG f(y) T(ylx) dy .
