Combinatorics and complexity of Kronecker coefficients

November 3 to November 7, 2014

at the

American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, California

organized by

Igor Pak, Greta Panova, and Ernesto Vallejo

Original Announcement

This workshop will be devoted to the study of Kronecker coefficients which describe the decomposition of tensor products of irreducible representations of a symmetric group into irreducible representations. We concentrate on their combinatorial interpretation, computational aspects and applications to other fields.

The workshop will focus on:
