Abstract: I'll go through a paper that recently appeared on the arxive
(http://arxiv.org/pdf/0910.5288v1) by P. McNamara where he shows that
for certain boundary conditions and certain weights the six vertex
model partition function can be written as a factorial Schur function.

I'll also talk a little bit about factorial Schur functions as
discussed by Alexander Molev in "Factorial supersymmetric Schur
functions and super Capelli identities". In Kirillov’s seminar on
representation theory, volume 181 of Amer. Math. Soc. Transl. Ser. 2,
pages 109–137. Amer. Math. Soc., Providence, RI, 1998.
