IQC Student Seminar Featuring Kieran Mastel

A quick introduction to Clifford theory

Clifford theory studies the connection between representations of a group and those of its normal subgroups. In recent work, I examined the Clifford theory of the Clifford group to determine parts of its character table for future applications. The goal of this talk is to introduce the representation theory and Clifford theory of finite groups sufficiently to understand next week's talk when I will explain the Clifford theory of the n-qubit Clifford group. Note that these are two distinct Cliffords. I may also briefly discuss the applications of Clifford theory in quantum error correction, time permitting.
