Title:Results on simultaneous core partitions
Seminar:Combinatorics/Partitions Seminar
Speaker:Dr. Rishi Nath, York College, CUNY
Abstract:
Simultaneous core partitions were first investigated in 1999 by J. Anderson. A recent conjecture by D. Armstrong on the average size of a simultaneous (s,t)-core; and subsequent work by R. Stanley and F. Zanello on the (s, s+1) (Catalan) case has renewed interest in this area. We will survey the main results in the field--highlighting connections with posets, actions of the affine symmetric group, and the GBG-rank--and offer new results on simultaneous (s, s+2)-cores.
