Introduction to the Path Model
by Arun Ram
Abstract: Another (hopefully even more) informal seminar/introduction:
Introduction to the Path Model (the topic is completely different than last Friday).
Generally, I would prefer to go slower but, to effect this, I need people to ask more of the basic questions as I go.
Otherwise I don't always realise what needs to be explained further.
I was asked about Lecture Notes and reference materials.
On Monday morning I will scan my notes and put them on the page
(This page will soon move to a unimelb server)
A few of us went to lunch afterwards. This worked well and I would
like to make it a habit -- it's fun and it helps me to get to know
in the department. More comments on this point on Wed.
About the path model:
I mean the model of P. Littelmann The model of P. Littelmann which generalises
Dyck paths to give combinatorial models for representations
of compact Lie groups. I am interested in using it to
determine the polytope whose integer points describe
the places where Littlewood-Richardson coefficients
(also called Clebsh-Gordon or tensor product coefficients)
