How can representation theory be applied in competitive programming?

Revision en1, by, 2017-05-08 07:51:57

Representation theory is a powerful method in mathematics. It allows us to represent a structure, such as a type of search space in programming problems, to a well-understood structure like vector space or module.

However, I have been fail to find a systematic way to apply ideas from representation theory to programming problems. Can anyone give me a guide or a way to approach this direction?
