Fall, 2008 Page 1 Lecture #3 : What is in a Character Table and How do we use it? Last time matrix representations of symmetry operators representations of group same multiplication table as symmetry operators characters of matrix representations (all we need for most applications) generate representation from convenient set of objects (basis vectors) GOT character table irreducible representations generalization of odd/even notation symmetry label for multi-dimensional GOAL integral with several non-commuting symmetry operators reduction of reducible representations generate and reduce reducible representations how do we get and use the fancy labels to the right of characters (a, b, c) (x, y, z) [conventions for x, y, z, I a I b I c for a, b, c] selection rules: pure rotation and rotation-vibration and Raman. nature of various types of vibration.
