In this chapter we will show that every unitary representation of a compact group is a direct sum of irreducibles, and that every irreducible unitary representation is finite dimensional. We further prove the Peter-Weyl theorem, which gives an explicit decomposition of the regular representation of the compact group K on L2(K).
