Six vertex model and factorial Schur functions
by R. Brak
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 Kirillovâ€™s seminar on
representation theory, volume 181 of Amer. Math. Soc. Transl. Ser. 2,
pages 109â€“137. Amer. Math. Soc., Providence, RI, 1998.
