Linear representations of finite groups

This book consists of three parts, rather different in level and purpose. The first part was originally written for quantum chemists. The second part is a course given in 1966 to second-year students of l'Ecole Normale. It completes in a certain sense the first part. The third part is an introduction to Brauer Theory.
