Polynomials and Representations XXIX
Characters Definition. The character of a continuous Gmodule V is defined as: This is a continuous map since it is an example of a matrix coefficient. Clearly for any . The following are quite easy to show: The last equality, … Continue reading
Polynomials and Representations XXVIII
Starting from this article, we will look at representations of . Now, itself is extremely complicated so we will only focus on representations of particular types. Generally, for any topological group G, we want: to be a continuous homomorphism of groups. Continuous … Continue reading
Polynomials and Representations XXVII
From the previous article, we have columns j < j’ in the column tabloid U, and given a set A (resp. B) of boxes in column j (resp. j’), we get: where is the column tabloid obtained by swapping contents of A with B while preserving the order. … Continue reading
Polynomials and Representations XXVI
Let us fix a filling of shape and consider the surjective homomorphism of modules given by rightmultiplying by Specifically, we will describe its kernel, which will have interesting consequences when we examine representations of later. Row and Column Tabloids By the … Continue reading

Polynomials and Representations XXV
Properties of the Young Symmetrizer Recall that for a filling , we have the subgroup of elements which take an element of the ith row (resp. column) of T to the ith row (resp. column) of T. Then: where is the Young symmetrizer. … Continue reading

Polynomials and Representations XXIV
Specht Modules Till now, our description of the irreps of are rather abstract. It would be helpful to have a more concrete construction of these representations – one way is via Specht modules. First write Thus if , the only common irrep between … Continue reading

Polynomials and Representations XXIII
PowerSum Polynomials We will describe how the character table of is related to the expansion of the powersum symmetric polynomials in terms of monomials. Recall: where exactly since is not defined. Now each irrep of is of the form for some … Continue reading
