Scientific Progam and Explanation

July 25th, 2011  |  Published in Uncategorized

NYSY is dedicated to the exchange of information in the study of the symmetric groups and the intersecting fields that meet there: ordinary and modular representation theory (of the symmetric, alternating and covering groups), Hecke and graded algebras, partition theory, modular forms and combinatorics. NYSY comes at a pivotal time when there have been some exciting developments in representation theory, geometry, combinatorics and related algebras. This workshop will bring together experts and junior researchers in the areas around the study of the symmetric group and will serve as a starting point for an ongoing conversation.
