The reader will find a detailed description of the theory of induced representations and Clifford theory, focusing on a general formulation of the little group method. This provides essential tools for the determination of all irreducible representations of wreath products of finite groups. The exposition also includes a detailed harmonic analysis of the finite lamplighter groups, the hyperoctahedral groups, and the wreath product of two symmetric groups. This relies on the generalised Johnson scheme, a new construction of finite Gelfand pairs. The exposition is completely self-contained and accessible to anyone with a basic knowledge of representation theory. Plenty of worked examples and several exercises are provided, making this volume an ideal textbook for graduate students. It also represents a useful reference for more experienced researchers. 0aHarmonic analysis. 0aFinite groups.1 aScarabotti, Fabio,eauthor1 aTolli, Filippo,eauthor40uhttps://doi.org/10.1017/CBO9781107279087zVolltext aCambridgeCore (Order 30059) a1 aXX(793018.1)wAUTOc1i793018-1001lELECTRONICmZBrNsYtE-BOOKu8/1/2020xUNKNOWNzUNKNOWN1ONLINE
