## Finite Groups of Lie Type: Conjugacy Classes and Complex CharactersThe finite groups of Lie type are of basic importance in the theory of groups. A classic in its field, this book presents the theories of finite groups of Lie type in a clear and accessible style, especially with regard to the main concepts of the theory and the techniques of proof used, and gives a detailed exposition of the complex representation theory. |
