Polynomials and Representations XXI
We have established that all irreps of are defined over and hence any field of characteristic 0. For convenience we will fix . Twists For any group G and representation over if is a group homomorphism, we can twist as follows: Sometimes, we also … Continue reading
Polynomials and Representations XX
From now onwards, we will assume the base field K has characteristic 0. Example: d=3 Following the previous article, we examine the case of . We get 3 partitions: , and Let us compute for all From the previous article, we have: Since , is … Continue reading

Representations of the Symmetric Group Let [d] be the set {1,…,d}, and Sd be the group of bijections From here on, we shall look at the representations of Note that this requires a good understanding of representation theory (character theory) of finite groups. To start, let … Continue reading

Polynomials and Representations XVIII
LittlewoodRichardson Coefficients Recall that the LittlewoodRichardson coefficient satisfies: By the previous article, for any SSYT of shape , is the number of skew SSYT of shape whose rectification is Since this number is independent of our choice of as long as its shape is … Continue reading
Polynomials and Representations XVII
Two Important Results In this article and the next, we will find a combinatorial way of computing the LittlewoodRichardson coefficient. The key result we have so far is that given any word w there is a unique SSYT T (called the rectification of … Continue reading
Polynomials and Representations XVI
Here is the main problem we are trying to solve today. Word Problem Given a word let us consider disjoint subwords of which are weakly increasing. For example if , then we can pick two or three disjoint subwords as follows: For … Continue reading

Polynomials and Representations XV
Tableaux and Words In our context, a word is a sequence of positive integers; concatenation of words is denoted by Given a skew SSYT the corresponding word is obtained by taking the tableau entries from left to right, then bottom to top. For example the … Continue reading

Polynomials and Representations XIV
In this article, we describe a way of removing the internal squares of a skew SSYT to turn it into an SSYT. Definition. First write the skew diagram as ; we define an inside corner to be a square in such that there is … Continue reading

Polynomials and Representations XIII
Skew Diagrams If we multiply two elementary symmetric polynomials and , the result is just , where is the concatenation of and sorted. Same holds for However, we cannot express in terms of easily, which is unfortunate since the Schur functions are the … Continue reading

Lindström–Gessel–Viennot Lemma Let us switch gears and describe a beautiful combinatorial result. Suppose is a graph which is directed, has no cycles, and there are only finitely many paths from a vertex to another. Given sets of n vertices: the lemma … Continue reading
