10 10 Group representations Set of representation matrices that can be block diagonalized termed a reducible representation Ex: trace = trace = 1 Character  of matrix is its trace (sum of diagonal elements)

12 12 Irreducible Representations 1. Sum of squares of dimensions d i of the irreducible representations of a group = order of group 2. Sum of squares of characters  i in any irreducible representation = order of group 3. Any two irreducible representations are orthogonal (sum of products of characters representing each operation = 0) 4. No. of irreducible representations of group = no. of classes in group (class = set of conjugate elements)

13 13 Irreducible Representations Ex: C 2h (E, C 2, i,  h ) Each operation constitutes a class C 2 – E -1 C 2 E = C 2 (C 2 ) -1 C 2 C 2 = C 2 i -1 C 2 i = C 2 (  h ) -1 C 2  h = C 2 Other elements behave similarly C 2h
