Abstract: We give an introduction to the representation theory of finite groups with a special emphasis on motivation. Much of the concepts generalize to compact groups as well. We then present the representation theory of the symmetric group and illustrate the beautiful combinatorics used to characterize it. The latter part will feature partitions, Young tableaux, and character tables!
