The combinatorics of crystals - what it is all about!

Algebra & Discrete Mathematics

Speaker: Prof. Anne Schilling, Dept. of Math. UC Davis
Location: 593 Kerr
Start time: Tue, Oct 23 2001, 10:00AM

Abstract: I will define crystal graphs and discuss some operations on Young tableaux which are necessary to understand them from a combinatorial viewpoint. Open problems and recent research results will also be mentioned. This talk will be elementary and should be suitable for graduate students/professors new to this field.
