Polynomials and Representations XXXVIII
Determinant Modules We will describe another construction for the Schur module. Introduce variables for . For each sequence we define the following polynomials in : Now given a filling T of shape λ, we define: where is the sequence of entries from the … Continue reading
Polynomials and Representations XXXIII
We are back to the convention and We wish to focus on irreducible polynomial representations of G. The weak PeterWeyl theorem gives: Theorem. Restricting the RHS to only polynomial irreducible V gives us on the LHS, where each polynomial in restricts to a function … Continue reading
Polynomials and Representations XXXI
KRepresentations and GRepresentations As mentioned at the end of the previous article, we shall attempt to construct analytic representations of from continuous representations of Let . Consider , where is the group of diagonal matrices in K so as a topological group. From our … Continue reading
Polynomials and Representations XXX
Representations of GLn and Un Note: all representations of topological groups are assumed to be continuous and finitedimensional. Here, we will look at representations of the general linear group We fix the following notations: denotes for some fixed ; is the … 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

Polynomials and Representations XXII
Product of Representations Recall that the Frobenius map gives an isomorphism of abelian groups: Let us compute what the product corresponds to on the RHS. For that, we take and where and Multiplication gives where is the partition obtained by sorting Next, we … Continue reading
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

Cauchy’s Identity In this article, our primary focus is the ring of symmetric polynomials in Theorem (Cauchy’s Identity). Consider polynomials over all partitions [Recall that if ] We have an equality of formal power series: Note. For convenience, we will use … Continue reading

Hall Inner Product Let us resume our discussion of symmetric polynomials. First we define an inner product on dth component of the formal ring. Recall that the sets are both bases of . Definition. The Hall inner product is defined by setting and to be … Continue reading
