## Winter 2012: *Representation Theory of *SL_2(R)

- References are listed below. We will assume multivariable calculus
and the representation theory of finite groups.
- To take the seminar for credit please register for MATH 592B, section 201.
Your grade will mainly be determined based on your lectures.

- We will meet on Fridays 11:00-12:30 in MATH 126.
