Minimal representations are the ''smallest'' infinite dimensional unitary representations. The Weil representation, which plays a prominent role in number theory, is a classic example.
Minimal representations of reductive groups are also considered as one of building blocks of unitary representations.
In this talk, I plan to discuss various aspects of minimal representations, ranging from algebra to analysis, mostly from my own taste that led me to my long project in this area.
