A graphical calculus will be developed for the algebra of shifted symmetric functions defined by Okounkov and Olshanski, using the Heisenberg categorification of Khovanov. We describe both graphical realisations of some important bases of the algebra of shifted symmetric functions and conversely give some combinatorial descriptions of important bases of the Heisenberg category using the language of free probability.
Week starting Monday 19 June 2017
Tuesday 20 June - Algebra and Topology Seminar
Friday 23 June
In this seminar we will give lectures on the Monge-Ampere equation, a reference book is Figalli’s “Monge-Ampere equation and its applications”. All interested people are welcome.
We will have a different speaker each week.
