Induced Representations

Chapter

Abstract

A representation of a group G produces, by restriction, a representation of any subgroup H. Remarkably, there is a procedure that runs in the opposite direction, producing a representation of G from a representation of H. This method, introduced by Frobenius [33], is called induction, and is a powerful technique for constructing and analyzing the structure of representations.
