**Algebra & Discrete Mathematics**

Speaker: | Lipika Deka, UC Davis |

Location: | 693 Kerr |

Start time: | Thu, Mar 7 2002, 3:10PM |

Reading seminar:

This will be a survey talk on Symmetric functions. I will talk about various Z-basis of the ring of symmetric functions including Schur functions. Also talk about Hall-Littlewood symmetric functions and a generalization of these to symmetric functions with two parameters. Will discuss about Kostka numbers, Kostka polynomials and its genalization to Kostka polynonials of two variables.
