The classical Murnaghanâ€“Nakayama rule for the characters of the symmetric group is also a formula for the product of a Schur symmetric function and a Newton power sum. The Murnaghan-Nakayama rule is as fundamental as the Pieri rule. In fact, the resulting formulas from the Murnaghan-Nakayama rule are significantly more compact than those from the Pieri formula. In this talk, I will discuss some background, and then our work establishing a Murnaghan-Nakayama rule for quantum Schubert polynomials. (Joint work with Benedetti, Bergeron, Saliola, and Sottile.)
