The illustration thought of the symmetric teams is a classical subject that, because the pioneering paintings of Frobenius, Schur and younger, has grown right into a large physique of thought, with many vital connections to different parts of arithmetic and physics. This self-contained ebook offers an in depth creation to the topic, masking classical subject matters resembling the Littlewood-Richardson rule and the Schur-Weyl duality. Importantly the authors additionally current many fresh advances within the sector, together with Lassalle's personality formulation, the speculation of partition algebras, and an exhaustive exposition of the procedure constructed by way of A. M. Vershik and A. Okounkov. A wealth of examples and routines makes this a fantastic textbook for graduate scholars. it's going to additionally function an invaluable reference for more matured researchers throughout a variety of parts, together with algebra, desktop technological know-how, statistical mechanics and theoretical physics.

This monograph brings jointly my paintings in mathematical facts as i've got seen it throughout the lens of Jordan algebras. 3 technical domain names are to be visible: purposes to random quadratic varieties (sums of squares), the research of algebraic simplifications of maxi mum probability estimation of patterned covariance matrices, and a extra extensive open mathematical exploration of the algebraic area from which i've got drawn the consequences utilized in the statistical difficulties simply pointed out.
The first aim of those lectures is to introduce a newbie to the finite dimensional representations of Lie teams and Lie algebras. on account that this aim is shared through a variety of different books, we must always clarify during this Preface how our procedure differs, even supposing the capability reader can most likely see this greater through a short flick through the booklet.
"A remarkably intelligible survey . . . good prepared, good written and extremely transparent all through. " — Mathematical ReviewsThis first-class textual content, lengthy one among the best-written, such a lot skillful expositions of workforce conception and its actual purposes, is directed basically to complicated undergraduate and graduate scholars in physics, specially quantum physics.
