Young Tableaux: With Applications to Representation Theory and Geometry

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, 1997 - Mathematics - 260 pages
Young tableaux are fillings of the boxes of diagrams that correspond to partitions with positive integers, that are strictly increasing down columns and weakly increasing along rows. The aim of this book is to develop the combinatorics of Young tableaux and to show them in action in the algebra of symmetric functions, the representations of the symmetric and general linear groups, and the geometry of flag varieties. Many of these applications have not been available in book form.
