Abstract: I plan to give an overview of the problem I am working on. I will start with a short introduction to Lie algebras, representations and quantum groups. Then I will talk about how these are related to crystal basis theory and Combinatorial objects called rigged configurations which is my research interest. I will try to make this an introductory talk towards these topics.
