This book contains the author's notes for a course that he taught at ETH, Zürich. The aim is to lead the reader to a proof of the Peter-Weyl theorem, the basic theorem in the representation theory of compact topological groups. The topological, analytical, and algebraic groundwork needed for the proof is provided as part of the course.
A publication of Hindustan Book Agency; distributed within the Americas by the American Mathematical Society. Maximum discount of 20% for all commercial channels.
General audience interested in the Peter-Weyl theorem.
"The presentation in this text is clear and to the point. The methods used are good classical ones. This is a good text for a student who knows little about locally compact groups and wants to get an introduction to some of the fundamental ideas needed to begin the study of them."
