Introduction to the Path Model

School Seminar

Institution: The University of Melbourne
Date: Wed 2nd July 2008
Time: 10:30 AM
Location: Room 107, Richard Berry Blding, The University of Melbourne

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
http://www.math.wisc.edu/~ram/talks.html
(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
people
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)
are nonzero.
