Abstract: In this talk, I will investigate the Haar measure for locally compact groups which is a generalization of the Lebesgue measure you all know. I am going to list some properties of this measure and generalizations of standard results in \(\mathbb{R}\), and give some extrinsic applications of it.

If the time permits, I will also quickly discuss the (unitary) representation theory of discrete groups and explain how it naturally links group theory to functional analysis. It is a part of my master's thesis that I have recently generalized.
