# Introduction to the representation theory of algebras by Michael Barot

By Michael Barot

This e-book supplies a common advent to the idea of representations of algebras. It starts off with examples of type difficulties of matrices less than linear differences, explaining the 3 universal setups: illustration of quivers, modules over algebras and additive functors over definite different types. the most half is dedicated to (i) module different types, featuring the unicity of the decomposition into indecomposable modules, the Auslander–Reiten thought and the means of knitting; (ii) using combinatorial instruments similar to size vectors and fundamental quadratic types; and (iii) deeper theorems similar to Gabriel‘s Theorem, the trichotomy and the theory of Kac – all observed by means of extra examples.
Each part contains routines to facilitate figuring out. by way of holding the proofs as easy and understandable as attainable and introducing the 3 languages firstly, this publication is appropriate for readers from the complex undergraduate point onwards and allows them to refer to similar, particular examine articles.

So, formally a direct sum is a quintuple (z, πx , πy , ιx , ιy ). 6. This justifies the common abuse of language to call z itself the direct sum of x and y and denote it as x ⊕ y. 12. If C = rep Q, the categorical direct sum corresponds to the direct sum defined for representations above. Also in case C = MQ the categorical direct sum corresponds to the direct sum in the language of matrix problems. 1 Verify that the morphisms of representations are precisely the morphisms between covariant K-linear functors KQ → vec.

They correspond to the following indecomposable representations of the Kronecker quiver 1 Vm X +λ resp. ✲ ✲ Vm Vm where Vm = K[X]/(X m ). X , ✲ ✲ Vm 1 ♦ Let V and W be two representations of a finite quiver Q. A morphism from V to W is a family of linear maps f = (fi : Vi → Wi )i∈Q0 such that for each arrow α : i → j we have fj Vα = Wα fi . 4) We denote a morphism just like a function, that is, we write f : V → W to indicate that f is a morphism from V to W . 4) states that the following diagram commutes: Vi fi ✲ Wi Vα ❄ Vj fj Wα ❄ ✲ Wj .

A submodule U of M is by definition an abelian subgroup U ⊆ M such that au ∈ U for all a ∈ A and all u ∈ U . If we restrict A to K we see that U is a subspace of M . The multiplication in M induces naturally a multiplication in the quotient space M/U by a(m + U ) := am + U . Hence each submodule U ⊆ M yields a quotient module M/U . Each K-algebra admits the zero space as module, which is called the zero module and denoted by 0. Given a K-algebra A and two left (resp. right) A-modules M and N . Then each homomorphism f : M → N of left (resp.
