Partitions and hook lengths


Xiong, Huan. Partitions and hook lengths. 2016, University of Zurich, Faculty of Science.

Abstract

The concept of partition is important in combinatorics, number theory and representation theory. It has attracted much attention in past centuries. In this thesis, the difference operators on functions of partitions and strict partitions are introduced to derive many new and classic hook-content formulas. As anapplication, several generalizations of Han-Stanley's theorem on polynomiality of Plancherel averages of symmetric functions related to hook lengths and contents are achieved. Many new hook-content formulas for self-conjugate and doubled distinct partitions are also derived. Motivated by number theory and modular representation theory of symmetric groups, t-core partitions are widely studied recently by many mathematicians. This thesis studies simultaneous core partitions and characterizes the largest size of (t; t+1; : : : ; t+p)-core partitions. We also verify Amdeberhan's conjectures on the number, the largest size and the average size of (t; t + 1)-core partitions with distinct parts.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
