The Algebraic Combinatorics Seminar

Scheduled for Fridays at 3:30 PM, Room 210

A working seminar at the Fields Institute, director:
Nantel Bergeron

Date Speaker Title (click titles for abstract) Sept 15 Nantel Bergeron Organization, two problems:

1- symmetric functions in super space

2- The space of planar trees graded by signature.Sept 22 Nantel Bergeron and Rafael S. González D'león The space of trees graded by signature. Sept 29 Nantel Bergeron and Rafael S. González D'león The space of trees graded by signature. Oct 6 Mike Zabrocki Symmetric functions in super space I organized the big picture related to the goal of this project: there are a number of polynomial and non-commutative polynomial rings for which the invariants and quasi-invariants are well known Hopf algebras (Sym, QSym, NCSym, etc.). I described the minimal information that we need in order to implement Sym and QSym and left the symmetric functions in super space and the quasi-symmetric functions in super-space as the next steps.Oct 13

At YORKJerzy Wejman This will be a coloquium talk at YORK University. This week only Oct 20 Mike Zabrocki Symmetric functions in super space The following papers will be our main focus:Also my code is can be accessed by executing the command:

- Classical symmetric functions in superspace
- Pieri rules for Schur functions in superspace
- Jack superpolynomials, superpartition ordering and determinantal formulas
- Jack superpolynomials: physical and combinatorial definitions
- Orthogonality of Jack polynomials in superspace
- Macdonald polynomials in superspace as eigenfunctions of commuting operators
- N>=2 symmetric superpolynomials

Oct 27 Reading week Nov 3 Rafael D'leon and Nantel Bergeron Hopf algebra of planar trees and stirling permutations (open questions in abstract) Last time we define Hopf algebra on Planar Binary Trees using a process describe by Aguiar and Sotille using "lightening". This is isomorphic to Loday-Ronco Hopf algebra. We can label the binary trees incrisingly and the "lightening" process still work to define a Hopf algebra. This time it is the larger and correspond to permutations. It is the Malvenuto-Reutenauer Hopf algebra. It is nice to express everything in term of trees as it makes the operation more transparent and explain better the relation between those algebras. Now we can generalize as well very easily. Consider non-degenerate planar trees (no internal node of degree 1). The process of lightening still work well and we can define two Hopf algebras on those trees We can also consider increasing labeling of such trees and now many natural questions arises: SEE QUESTIONS transcripted by JamesNov 10 Mike Zabrocki Symmetric functions in super space Last time we conjectured a formula for the Monomial and Fundamental quasi-symmetric functions in super space. We will need to work to refine and clarify the notation for these formulae and conjecture their product and coproduct in analogy with the monomial and fundamental bases of QSym.
