Abstract
For most of the finite subgroups of $\SL(3,\mathbf{C})$, we give explicit formulae for
the Molien series of the coinvariant algebras, generalizing McKay's formulae
\cite{M99} for subgroups of $\SU(2)$. We also study the $G$orbit Hilbert scheme
$\Hilb^G(\mathbf{C}^3)$ for any finite subgroup $G$ of $\SO(3)$, which is known to be a
minimal (crepant) resolution of the orbit space $\mathbf{C}^3/G$. In this case the fiber
over the origin of the HilbertChow morphism from $\Hilb^G(\mathbf{C}^3)$ to $\mathbf{C}^3/G$
consists of finitely many smooth rational curves, whose planar dual graph is
identified with a certain subgraph of the representation graph of $G$. This is
an $\SO(3)$ version of the McKay correspondence in the $\SU(2)$ case.
