Group theory:

Group theory is the study of algebraic structures called groups, which arise naturally throughout mathematics. Groups encode the symmetries in a vast range of mathematical and physical systems, and group theory provides a powerful and unified language for studying these symmetries. Research in group theory at Bristol is focussed on finite and algebraic groups, and geometric group theory.

Representation theory:

Representation theory, in its broadest sense, is the art of relating the symmetries of different objects. It is a vast subject enjoying a close relationship with topology, geometry, number theory, combinatorics and mathematical physics.
