Summary: Linear free divisors are free divisors, in the sense of K. Saito, with linear presentation matrix. Using techniques of deformation theory on representations of quivers, we exhibit families of such linear free divisors as discriminants in representation varieties for real Schur roots of a finite quiver. Along the way we review some basic results on representation varieties of quivers, their associated fundamental exact sequence and semi-invariants; explain in detail how to verify the occurring discriminant as a free divisor and how to determine its components and their equations. As an illustration, the linear free divisors that arise as the discriminant from the highest root of a Dynkin quiver are treated explicitly.
