Algebra Seminar

The Littlewood-Richardson rule and the hive model


Friday 9th November, 12:05--12:55pm, Carslaw 175


Sangjib Kim (University of Queensland)


The Littlewood-Richardson rule and the hive model.


The Littlewood-Richardson rule provides a combinatorial description of the multiplicities in the decomposition of tensor products of irreducible representations of \(\mathrm{GL}(n,\mathbb{C})\). We will discuss the hive model of the Littlewood-Richardson rule and its relation to other combinatorial results in representation theory.


After the seminar we will take the speaker to lunch.

See the Algebra Seminar web page for information about other seminars in the series.
