The Quantum Sylvester Theorem and its applications.
Friday 25th September, 121pm, Carslaw 273.
Classically, Sylvester's theorem provides certain relations for
the minors of a matrix. We give a "quantum" version
of this theorem where minors are replaced with "quantum"
minors. Then we apply it to identify the socalled
elementary representations of the Yangian for the general
linear Lie algebra.
