Title:Lie superalgebras and some characters of S_n
Seminar:Combinatorics/Partitions Seminar
Speaker:Amitai Regev, Department of Mathematics, Weizmann Institute of Science
We construct a certain natural character of the symmetric group S_n. In one special case the value of that character is zero on partitions having at least one even component. And the values on odd partitions depend only on the lengths of the partitions. By applying the theory of Lie superalgebras we prove a closed formula for the values of these characters.
