This Week’s Finds – Lecture 2

Young diagrams are combinatorial structures that show up in a myriad of applications. Here we explain how to classify irreducible representations of the symmetric groups Sₙ using Young diagrams. Then we introduce some ‘classical groups’ – famous groups whose irreducible representations can also be classified using Young diagrams.

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

By the way: the video here has better resolution than the previous one. It starts out a bit too zoomed-in, but later it gets better.

You can use Markdown or HTML in your comments. You can also use LaTeX, like this: $latex E = m c^2 $. The word 'latex' comes right after the first dollar sign, with a space after it.
