Given a group, can we regard its elements as statements of what the operation does, while its representations are the mathematical translation?
For instance, given a square, I'd say that ##a## is an operation that rotates the square by 90°, and the representation of ##a## would be the matrix that actually rotates its vertices as long as coordinates are given.
