This Week’s Finds – Lecture 1

Young diagrams are combinatorial structures that show up in a myriad of applications. In this talk I explain how Young diagrams classify conjugacy classes in the symmetric groups, introduce the representation theory of finite groups, and start to explain how Young diagrams classify irreducible representations of the symmetric groups.

For more details, read my paper “Young diagrams and classical groups” here:
