### Algebra Seminar

# The Littlewood-Richardson rule and the hive model

### Kim

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

###### Speaker:

Sangjib Kim (University of Queensland)

###### Title:

The Littlewood-Richardson rule and the hive model.

###### Abstract:

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.
