The class algebras of the symmetric groups and the wreath products
We will describe connections between vertex algebras and
the class algebras of the symmetric groups (and more generally of
the wreath products), and give some applications. A key ingredient
is the Jucys-Murphy elements for the symmetric groups as well as
its generalization to the wreath products.
