Example text

Theorem A group G splits into “conjugacy classes” C1 , C2 , . . , Cnc such that the following properties hold: (i) Every element of G is in some class, and no element of G is in more than one class, so that G = C1 ∪ C2 ∪ · · · ∪ Cnc . 9) Sometimes this relationship is written with + signs rather than ∪ signs, but the relationship is a union of classes, not a sum of classes. (ii) All the elements in a given class are mutually conjugate and consequently have the same order s. (iii) An element that commutes with all elements of the group is in a class by itself and is called a self-conjugate element.

(iv) hijk = h¯i¯j k¯ (v) nc(k)hijk = nc(i)hk¯ji = nc(i)hj k¯¯i = nc(j)hik¯¯j (vi) hij1 = nc(i)δi¯j where nc(i) is the number of elements in class Ci and where bars denote the inverse class. That is, C¯i is a class that contains the inverses of the elements of class Ci . Note that the third subscript on h is the number 1, not the letter l.

If an element of a finite group is repeatedly multiplied by itself, it will eventually yield the identity. 1 we see that D3 = D(D2 ) = DF = E. The order of an element X is the smallest positive integer n such that X n = E. The order of D is 3. A physical example of an abstract group is called a realization. Distinct matrices representing distinct geometric transformations whose operations satisfy the group multiplication table are examples of realizations. Groups of numbers could also constitute a realization, but we will consider a realization of an abstract group to mean the elements of the group have a physical meaning.
