This book places character theory and its applications to finite groups within the reach of people with a comparatively modest mathematical background. The work concentrates mostly on applications of character theory to finite groups. The main themes are degrees and kernels of irreducible characters, the class number and the number of nonlinear irreducible characters, values of irreducible characters, characterizations and generalizations of Frobenius groups, and generalizations of monomial groups. The presentation is detailed, and many proofs of known results are new.
Graduate students and research mathematicians working in finite group theory and applications.
"The reviewer regards the book as a "must", certainly due to the techniques and results offered, it is up to date, and it is ... a very welcome and illuminating contribution in presenting to the mathematical community the beauty of the theory of characters of finite groups."
