What's the use of it? Anyone show a simple but illustrative example of the usefulness of representation theory?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I can see how faithful representations might be useful but not fully. What I can't imagine is how unfaithful representations can be of any use.

Thanks
