Stability for symmetric groups and Hecke algebras
Speaker: Weiqiang Wang, University of Virginia
Title: Stability for symmetric groups and Hecke algebras
Abstract: We will describe a certain stability for the structure constants (with respect to the class sums) of the centers of the group algebras of the symmetric groups S_n for varying n, and its geometric interpretation. We shall then discuss the generalization of such a stability phenomenon for wreath products, Hecke algebras, and finite general linear groups. This talk should be accessible to undergraduate and graduate students.
