ABURTO, LUISA; JOHNSON, ROBERTO y PANTOJA, JOSÉ. THE COMPLEX LINEAR REPRESENTATIONS OF GL(2, k), k A FINITE FIELD. Proyecciones (Antofagasta) [online]. 2006, vol.25, n.3, pp. 307-330. ISSN 0716-0917. doi: 10.4067/S0716-09172006000300007.
Let k be a finite field of odd characteristic, and let G be the group of all invertible 2 ¡¿ 2 matrices over k. We construct the irreducible complex linear representations of the group G.The constructions lean on the method of induction from subgroups and on the theory of characters. To accomplish this goal, the basic facts from the theory of representations and characters of finite groups are presented. Furthermore, we describe the structure of G that we need, and the theory of representations of some subgroups of G that we use. As a final result, we obtain the theory of the irreducible representations of G,by describing either the irreducible representations of , or the irreducible characters of the group G
