Abstract:

Schur polynomials are the characters of finite-dimensional irreducible representations of the general linear group. We will discuss both continuous and discrete concavity property of Schur polynomials. There will be one theorem and eight conjectures. No background beyond basic representation theory will be necessary to enjoy the talk. Based on joint work with Jacob Matherne, Karola Mészáros, and Avery St. Dizier.
