Write out the permutation matrix representation of the dihedral group D 4 corresponding to its action on the vertices of a square. Let S = { 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 } be the vertices of a square. In terms of generators and relations we have D 4 = ,  4 = 2 = 1 , =  1 . Thus T (1) = 1 1 1 1 , T ( ) = 1 1 1 1 , T ( ) = 1 1 1 1 , T ( ) = 1 1 1 1 , T ( 2 ) = 1 1 1 1 , T ( 2 ) = 1 1 1 1 , T ( 3 ) = 1 1 1 1 , T ( 3 ) = 1 1 1 1 . 8.1.2. Write out the left regular matrix representation if G = Z 4 , Z 2 Z 2 , S 3 , or D 4 . We do a couple examples for each group. First let G = Z 4 = a  a 4 = 1 and let V be the vector space with basis { 1 , a, a 2 , a 3 } . Then T ( a ) = 1 1 1 1 , T ( a 2 ) = 1 1 1 1 . Let G = Z 2 Z 2 and let V be the vector space with basis { (1 , 1) , (1 , a ) , ( a, 1) , ( a, a ) } . Then T (( a, 1)) = 1 1 1 1 , T (( a, a )) = 1 1 1 1 . 1 Let G = S 3 and let V be the vector space with basis { 1 , (123) , (132) , (12) , (13) , (23) } . Then T ((123)) = 1 1 1 1 1 1 , T ((23)) = 1 1 1 1 1 1 . Finally let G = D 4 be as above and let V be the vector space with basis { 1 , , 2 , 3 , , , 2 , 3 } . Then T ( ) = 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 , T ( ) = 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 . 8.2. Suppose T 1 , T 2 , . . . , T k are mutually inequivalent irreducible representations of G , with T m ( x ) = ( t ( m ) ij ( x )) , 1 m k . Use proposition 8.4 to show that the functions t ( m ) ij , all m, i, j , are Clinearly independent. If n m = deg T m...
