 Sylow theorem
In mathematics, especially group theory, the Sylow theorems, named after Ludwig Sylow, form a partial converse to Lagrange's theorem, which states that if H is a subgroup of a finite group G, then the order of H divides the order of G.
The group G acts on itself or on the set of its p-subgroups in various ways, and each such action can be exploited to prove one of the Sylow theorems.
The proofs of the Sylow theorems exploit the notion of group action in various creative ways.

Subjects that will be discussed are: induced representations, Mackey's imprimitivity theorem, Heisenberg group, Stone-von Neumann theorem, highest weight theory and Borel-Weil description of representations of compact groups, induced representations of non-compact semisimple groups, Harish-Chandra modules, representations of the principal and the discrete series of SL(2, R).
The theory then leads to the structure theory of compact Lie groups and their Lie algebras, including the description of the maximal tori, roots and root spaces, the Weyl group and Weyl's integration theorem.
The first case is the setting of classical mechanics with a symmetry group; quantization of such a situation leads to questions of representation theory of K and spectral theory of differental operators commuting with (spectral degeneration).

 Errata for Adventures in Group Theory
In the form given in the book, Lagrange's theorem (for permutation groups) was probably known to Galois and appeared in a work of Serret and of Jordan.
It is worth remarking that, contrary to what might be suggested by the name of the result, Lagrange's theorem, in the forms stated here, is not due to Lagrange.
Generally, if the table says "semi-direct product of A with B (with B normal)", it should read "semi-direct product of A with B (with A normal)".

 E. Noether's Discovery of the Deep Connection Between Symmetries and Conservation Laws
For theories whose symmetry group is an infinite continuous group, the main results of theorem II are that there are certain identities, or "dependencies" as she called them [1], between Lagrange functions of the theory and their derivatives.
This is quite different from the results of theorem I that for each infinitesimal generator of the finite continuous group there is a quantity whose divergence vanishes when the Lagrange functions vanish (field equations are satisfied).
Noether's theorem 11 applies in the case of general relativity and one sees that she has proved Hilbert's assertion that in this case one has `improper energy theorems', and that this is a characteristic feature of the theory.

The symmetry group of the theory, is a gauge group.
It is owing to the fact that the theory is a gauge theory; i.e., that it has an infinite continuous group of symmetries of which time translations are a subgroup.

 Amazon.ca: Books: Galois Theory
Some antecedents of Galois theory in the works of Gauss, Lagrange, Vandemonde, Newton, and even the ancient Babylonians, are explained in order to put Galois' main ideas in their historical setting.
Other books would give a succession of "theorem-proofs" that eventually proved the Galois solvability theorem but when I was finished, I still could not intuitively understand how the solvability of Galois groups to corresponds to solvability by radicals.
I disagree with the author that the original text of Galois is the best way to learn the theory, I found it considerably less readable than Artin's book, and it placed Galois theory too much in its historical context of solution by radicals.
