This chapter is a brief account on unitary representations of locally compact and Hausdorff groups on separable and complex Hilbert spaces. Only the most basic topics are touched on in this chapter. The more advanced theory of squareintegrable representations is given in the next chapter. A good reference for this chapter is Chapter 3 of the book  by Folland. A more comprehensive treatise is the book  by Kirillov.
