Molecular Aspects of Symmetry

The contents of this booklet were used in classes given through the writer. the 1st was once a one-semester direction for seniors on the college of British Columbia; it used to be transparent that solid undergraduates have been completely in a position to dealing with ordinary workforce thought and its program to easy quantum chemical difficulties.

11), although the changes will not affect the ﬁnite-dimensional case. Two representations will be called equivalent if they are the same up to, basically, a change of basis. Recall that Hom(V, V ) is the set of all linear maps from V to V . 2. Let (π, V ) and (π , V ) be ﬁnite-dimensional representations of a Lie group G. (1) T ∈ Hom(V, V ) is called an intertwining operator or G-map if T ◦ π = π ◦ T . (2) The set of all G-maps is denoted by HomG (V, V ). (3) The representations V and V are equivalent, V ∼ = V , if there exists a bijective G-map from V to V .

2, this deﬁnes a representation. As ﬁne and natural as this representation is, it actually contains a smaller, even nicer, representation. Write = ∂x21 + · · · + ∂x2n for the Laplacian on Rn . 5). 5. , Hm (Rn ) = {P ∈ Vm (Rn ) | P = 0}. If P ∈ Hm (Rn ) and g ∈ O(n), then (g · P) = g · ( P) = 0 so that g · P ∈ Hm (Rn ). In particular, the action of O(n) on Vm (Rn ) descends to a representation of O(n) (or S O(n), of course) on Hm (Rn ). It will turn out that these representations do not break into any smaller pieces.

However, most frequently they manifest themselves through an action on a vector space which will be called a representation.
