The physical properties of C60 and general fullerenes are discussed with particular regard to group theoretical concepts. We summarize the role of group theory in specifying the multiplet electronic structures for C60, doped C60 and photoexcited neutral C60, as well as the multiplet levels and the vibronic interactions for the photoluminescence spectra of excitonic levels.
