### Direct proof that the centralizer of $GL(V)$ acting on $V^{\otimes n}$ is spanned by $S_n$

Let $V$ be a finite dimensional vector space over a field of characteristic zero. Let $A$ be the space of maps in $\mathrm{End}(V^{\otimes n})$ which commute with the natural $GL(V)$ action. Clearly, ...

### Is there “Schur-Weyl duality” for infinite dimensional unitary group?

To what extent does the relation between the diagonal representation of $SU(n)$ in $(\mathbb{C}^n)^{\otimes k}$ and representations of the symmetric group $S_k$ remain valid when instead of the group ...

### Schur functors generalization to “Jack”, “Hall-Littlewood”, “Macdonald” functors ?

Schur functors are functors from the category of vector spaces to itself.
If we take an operator $M: V->V$ and apply a Schur functor to it and then calculate trace $Tr(M^{\Lambda})$ we will get ...

### Exact sequences of bundles on Grassmannians

We're looking for a large set of exact sequences of vector bundles on Grassmannians. Here's the set up:
$V$ and $Q$ are complex vector spaces of dimensions $d$ and $r$ respectively $(d\geq r)$, and ...

### Iterated Pieri's rule, Schur functors and intersection of subrepresentations

Let $\lambda$ and $\mu$ be two Young diagrams, such that $\lambda$ can be obtained from $\mu$ by extending one single column with additional $b$ boxes. Let $\Sigma^\lambda U$ and $\Sigma^\mu U$ denote ...

### Question about decomposition of exterior product

In their paper "New lower bounds for the border rank of matrix multiplication", Landsberg and Ottaviani make use of the fact that
$$\tag{$\dagger$} {\textstyle\bigwedge}^p(V\otimes W) \cong ...

### A formula on Kronecker coefficients

Accidentally, I proved the following formula for the Kronecker coefficients using some obscure method.
$$g_{lm^n,mn^l}^{m^{nl}}=1,\ \forall l,m,n\in\mathbb{N},$$
where $n^m$ is the rectangle ...

### An isomorphism of 2-Schur modules

This is the little brother of question 68071: elementary, simple-looking and probably much easier to answer. Of course, it is just a small part of question 68071, as anybody with $\lambda$-rings ...

### Is there a generalization of Schur - Weyl duality and plethysm for direct product of special unitary groups?

Consider the semisimple compact group $K=SU(N_1)\times SU(N_2) \times \ldots \times SU(N_S)$ acting naturally on $\mathcal{H}=\mathcal{H}_1 \otimes \mathcal{H}_2 \otimes \ldots \otimes \mathcal{H}_S$, ...

### Explicit description of isomorphism when decomposing into irreps

I had a question which is slightly more general than this one on mathoverflow: I am looking for an explicit description of the isomorphism
$\mathbb S_\nu(V\otimes W) \cong \bigoplus C_{\lambda\mu\nu} ...

### A basis for Schur functors

Suppose $V$ is a finite-dimensional vector space (over $\mathbb{C}$) and $\lambda$ is a partition of $n$ (not necessarily the dimension). Let $S^\lambda(V)=(V^{\otimes n})_\lambda$ be the $\lambda$'th ...

### Can the projection (tensor algebra) -> (symmetric algebra) be forced to split in char. p by factoring out p-th powers?

Question 1 (the weak and simple statement, which, I think, already is wrong): Let $p$ be a prime. Let $k$ be a field with characteristic $p$.
For any $k$-vector space $V$, consider the canonical ...

### Symmetric invariants of a Schur Module

Let $V\cong\mathbb C^n$ be a complex vector space of dimension $n$. Let $\lambda\in\mathbb Z^r$ be a generalized integer partition $\lambda_1\ge\cdots\ge\lambda_r$ with $r\le n$. Denote by $\mathbb ...

### Is the Symplectic Schur algebra a 0-faithful cover of the Brauer algebra?

The symplectic Schur algebra, $Sp_{2n}$ and the Brauer algebra, $B_r(n)$, are in Schur-Weyl duality over an algebraically closed field of characteristic $p$ (this is due to Doty et. al.). The ...
