MAT534.1: “Seminar Representation theory of finite groups”
The philosophy is: Groups are symmetries, and symmetries are interesting, but hard.
So we want to translate groups into (way easier) algebra.
Preferable into linear algebra. This is the main idea behind representation theory,
i.e. replace (usually nonlinear) groups by their linear shadow (matrices).
