Polynomials and Representations XXXIX

Some Invariant Theory We continue the previous discussion. Recall that for we have a -equivariant map which induces an isomorphism between the unique copies of in both spaces. The kernel Q of this map is spanned by for various fillings T with shape and entries … Continue reading

Polynomials and Representations XXXVII

Notations and Recollections For a partition , one takes its Young diagram comprising of boxes. A filling is given by a function for some positive integer m. When m=d, we will require the filling to be bijective, i.e. T contains {1,…,d} and each element occurs exactly … Continue reading

Modular Representation Theory (III)

Let’s work out some explicit examples of modular characters. First, we have a summary of the main results. Let be the modular characters of the simple k[G]-modules; they form a basis of Let  be those of the projective indecomposable k[G]-modules; they form a basis … Continue reading

Tensor Product over Noncommutative Rings

Following the earlier article on tensor products of vector spaces, we will now look at tensor products of modules over a ring R, not necessarily commutative. It turns out we have to distinguish between left and right modules now. Indeed recall … Continue reading

Tensor Product and Linear Algebra

Tensor products can be rather intimidating for first-timers, so we’ll start with the simplest case: that of vector spaces over a field K. Suppose V and W are finite-dimensional vector spaces over K, with bases and respectively. Then the tensor product is the vector … Continue reading
