Ordinary representation theory has been widely researched to the extent that there is a well-understood method for constructing the ordinary irreducible characters of a finite group. In parallel, John McKay showed how to associate to a finite group a graph constructed from the group's irreducible representations. In this project, we prove a structure theorem for the McKay graphs of products of groups as well as develop formulas for the graphs of two infinite families of groups. We then study the modular representations of these families and give conjectures for a modular version of the McKay graphs.
