Group Representations Representations of the Symmetric Group Combinatorial Algorithms Symmetric Functions Applications and Generalizations
* Group Representations * Representations of the Symmetric Group * Combinatorial Algorithms * Symmetric Functions * Applications and Generalizations
This book brings together many of the important results in this field.
From the reviews: ""A classic gets even better....The edition has new material including the Novelli-Pak-Stoyanovskii bijective proof of the hook formula, Stanley's proof of the sum of squares formula using differential posets, Fomin's bijective proof of the sum of squares formula, group acting on posets and their use in proving unimodality, and chromatic symmetric functions." --ZENTRALBLATT MATH
There has recently been a resurgence of interest in representations of symmetric groups as well as other Coxeter groups. This book brings together for the first time many of the important results in this field. It includes a new chapter on applications of the materials from the first edition. The only prerequisites are elementary group theory and linear algebra.
