Math 6161 Algebraic Combinatorics :
Symmetric Functions 

The following are computer labs which we use
Maple to represent algebraic concepts and do computations. Some
of the examples may not be well enough documented to follow
with attending the class but if you have an questions please
feel free to email me (don't just try the computation without trying
to understand what it demonstrates).
These worksheets were done in Maple V Release 5. It is unfortunate
that Maple has not released a version of Maple 8 for the system
that I use. They have been promising a version for Mac OSX for
years now and there is no release date set. For now it is the
most useful computer algebra system for the types of computations
that we will do in this class and I can't find a replacement.
The labs I list below will be edited as time goes on. I sometimes need
to correct them and edit them as I find bugs and add features.
The first one is on groups, matrix representations and modules.
There are problems that go with these labs to be found on the running list
of homework assignments listed on the handouts page.
