| In this videotaped lecture, Charles W. Curtis presents an overview of the historical development of the representation theory of finite groups. Starting with the roots of the subject in Gauss' work, Curtis covers Frobenius' research in character theory and Burnside's work in representation theory around the turn of the century. The lecture is accessible to undergraduates with a background in algebra and group theory. (Louisville, KY, 1990) |
