Speaker: Hassain M.

Time: 09:15 pm – 10:15 pm

Venue: Lecture Hall I, Department of Mathematics

Abstract: For a finite group G by a representation we mean a group homomorphism from G to the group of automorphisms of a finite dimensional complex vector space. In this talk we will discuss the irreducible representations and conjugacy classes of GL_2(F_q), the group of 2 × 2 invertible matrices over the finite field F_q with q elements, where q is a prime power. Also we will find the character table of GL_2(F_q) explicitly.
