Quasisymmetric functions and a Littlewood-Richardson ruleStudent-Run Applied & Math Seminar
|Speaker: ||Jeffrey Ferreira, UC Davis|
|Location: ||1147 MSB|
|Start time: ||Wed, Mar 9 2011, 12:10PM|
I will give some background on quasisymmetric functions and define a basis for the space of all quasisymmetric functions. This basis exhibits a Littlewood-Richardson type rule under the action of multiplying by a Schur function. If time permits, an application of this rule will be given.
