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.
