Introduction to Representation Theory

  • T. Y. Lam
Part of the Problem Books in Mathematics book series (PBM)


In this new chapter, we shift our main emphasis from rings to modules. More specifically, we study modules over finite-dimensional k-algebras, where k is a field. For such an algebra R, R/rad R is a finite-dimensional semisimple k-algebra, whose structure is completely determined by Wedder-burn’s Theorem. Thus, the study of simple (and semisimple) left R-modules is well under control.
