dc.description.abstractRepresentation theory is a field of study within abstract algebra that originated around the turn of the 19th century in the work of Frobenius on representations of finite groups. More recently, Hopf algebras -- a class of algebras that includes group algebras, enveloping algebras of Lie algebras, and many other interesting algebras that are often referred to under the collective name of ``quantum groups'' -- have come to the fore. This dissertation will discuss generalizations of certain results from group representation theory to the setting of Hopf algebras. Specifically, our focus is on the following two areas: Frobenius divisibility and Kaplansky's sixth conjecture, and the adjoint representation and the Chevalley property.
