During the first week, the morning lectures covered the basics of the combinatorics of tableaux and symmetric functions. The following are the notes from that session as well as the three assignments which followed that material.
Notes on tableaux
Notes on symmetric functions
exercises 1, exercises 2, exercises 3

During the second week the morning lectures covered an introduction to representation theory of finite groups and symmetric functions. There were two problem sets which were related to this material.
Notes on representation theory of finite groups - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
exercises 1, exercises 2

There were two different subjects for the afternoon sessions. The following links are to the notes for these lectures.
