Title:Commutative and Noncommutative Symmetric Functions
Seminar:PMASS Colloquium
Speaker:Vladimir Retakh, Rutgers University
Abstract:
The classical theory of commutative symmetric functions started a long time ago when people realized the connection between coefficients of polynomial equations and their roots. Nowadays, symmetric functions appear in almost every area of mathematics and the theory continues to grow. The theory of noncommutative symmetric functions is much younger but but we can already count a number of interesting results and applications in this direction. The talk is dedicated to basic notions and connections of the both theories of symmetric functions.
