Mark Wildon's Website: Symmetric group meeting

The symmetric group: representations and combinatorics

The representation theory of the symmetric group is an active area of research that sees an appealing interplay between algebra and combinatorics. On the 29 March 2011 a one-day meeting was held at Royal Holloway to bring together people working in this area and other interested non-specialists.

The speakers and talk titles were as follows:

1 pm — 2 pm Mark Wildon A tour of Foulkes' Conjecture
2.30 pm — 3.30 pm Matthew Fayers s-cores and t-cores
4.15 pm — 5.15 pm Christine Bessenrodt Revisiting the hook formula — relative degrees and hook separation

The meeting was supported by an LMS grant under scheme 1.
