Symmetric functions and representations of the symmetric group

Series: 
Student Algebraic Geometry Seminar
Thursday, October 11, 2018 - 1:30pm
1 hour (actually 50 minutes)

Organizer: 
I will discuss some elementary theory of symmetric functions and give a brief introduction to representation theory with a focus on the symmetric groups. This talk relates to the discussion of Schubert calculus in the intersection theory reading course but can be understood independent of attending the reading course.
