Eugenio GiannelliEstimados compañeros:

Los próximos días 19-21 de octubre, Eugenio Giannelli (T.U. Kaiserlslautern) impartirá un curso en la Universitat de València sobre Teoría de Representaciones del Grupo Simétrico. La duración aproximada del curso será de 4 horas y media.


The aim of this short course is to define and characterize the simple modules for
the symmetric groups in both the ordinary and the modular setting. This will be
done via the classical combinatorial approach, used by Gordon James. The main
reference for these lectures is the book “The Representation Theory of Symmetric
Groups” by Gordon James.
