Young Tableaux: With Applications to Representation Theory and Geometry
This seminar is intended for students of the Master's degree program. We discuss selected topics from William Fulton's book
“Young Tableaux: With Applications to Representation Theory and Geometry.”
Each participant gives a talk, which will be graded. Furthermore, we expect them to be present during the other talks and actively take part. Please note that the talks have to be given in English.
We use the first date for a preliminary discussion and the allocation of the talks. If you are interested, please send a mail to Professor Fourier.
