A homomorphism of a group (respectively an algebra, ring, semi-group) into the group of all invertible linear operators on a vector space (respectively, into the algebra, ring, multiplicative semi-group of all linear operators on ). If is a topological vector space, then a linear representation of on is a representation whose image contains only continuous linear operators on . The space is called the representation space of and the operators , , are called the operators of the representation .
