Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book brings together many of the important results in this field. From the reviews: ""A classic gets even better....The edition has new material including the Novelli-Pak-Stoyanovskii bijective proof of the hook formula, Stanley's proof of the sum of squares formula using differential posets, Fomin's bijective proof of the sum of squares formula, group acting on posets and their use in proving unimodality, and chromatic symmetric functions." --ZENTRALBLATT MATH

Synopsis:

This is an introduction to the representation theory of the symmetric group from three different points of view: via general representation theory, via combinatorial algorithms, and via symmetric functions. It is the only book to deal with all three aspects of this subject at once. A number of the combinatorial results presented have never appeared in book form before and the book will serve as a good reference for those working in this field. The second edition includes some new proofs and applications of the theory.

Synopsis:

This text is an introduction to the representation theory of the symmetric group from three different points of view: via general representation theory, via combinatorial algorithms, and via symmetric functions. It is the only book to deal with all three aspects of this subject at once. The style of presentation is relaxed yet rigorous and the prerequisites have been kept to a minimum¿undergraduate courses in linear algebra and group theory will suffice.
