The representation theory of groups is an extremely useful mathematical framework to use when considering the action of symmetry transformations on quantum systems. This book gives you a mathematically rigorous explanation of the theory, but also includes many examples and illustrations of its uses, especially in solid state and molecular physics. Also included is a chapter on gauge groups. There are problems at the end of each chapter; solutions are given.
Aimed primarily at final-year physics undergraduates with a good mathematical background, but also useful to first year postgraduates in solid state, atomic or elementary particle physics.
