Questions FFFFC0



  • Intuitively understand the Schur functions as the characters of the irreducible representations of the general linear groups.
  • Discover a more natural way to express the Schur functions than the rim hook tableaux. Do this for both symmetric function and for the functions of the eigenvalues.
    • Understand the relations of the Schur functions to the binomial theorem.
    • Consider the Schur functions in terms of the Jacobi-Trudi formulas - and what it means for the eigenvalue case.
    • Understand how the role of the Schur functions and rim hook tableaux depends on the characteristic k of the field.
  • Understand the combinatorics underlying the map between elementary (< decreasing slack) and homogeneous (<= increasing slack) bases, especially as it works in taking the power (=) basis to define the Schur (< x <=) bases. Consider this also in the case of the eigenvalues of a matrix. We also have a foursome, perhaps: Schur - monomial - forgotten? - power. The human bases - monomial and forgotten - map to elementary and homogeneous?
  • Make sense combinatorially of the map between the homogeneous functions of eigenvalues in terms of words and in terms of products of Lyndon words.
  • Consider what can be said of a postive definite matrix of eigenvalues of a matrix.
