For a paper I am writing related to the history of combinatorics, I am
looking for the year of birth of Craige Eugene
Schensted, the eponym for the
Schensted correspondence. According to this
site, a ...

### About $K$-rectification of increasing tableaux

Let $T$ be a standard Young tableaux on $[n]$. Denote the RSK algorithm $\text{RSK}(w)=(P(T),Q(T))$ for $w\in\mathfrak{S}_n$, where $P(T)$ is the Schencted insertion tableaux.
For $1\leq i\leq j\leq n$...

### Can $S_n$ be partitioned into subsets containing an involution and satisfying $∀σ≠τ, ∃j$ s.t. $σ(j)≠τ(j),σ^{−1}(j)=τ^{−1}(j)$?

Background
Let $\sigma, \tau \in S_n$. We will say that $\sigma$ and $\tau$ are locally orthogonal and write $\sigma \perp \tau$ if there exists $j \in \{1, 2, \ldots, n\}$ such that $\sigma(j) \neq \...

### RSK on matrices with non-integer values

In the usual RSK algorithm, matrices with non-negative integer valued entries are mapped bijectively to a pair of tableaux. The length of the top row of either of the tableaux gives the maximal weight ...

### Correspondence between $SBT (n)$ and $W(B_n)$

Let $W(B_n)$ be a Weyl group of type $B_n$ and $SBT (n)$ the set of standard bitableaux of size $n$. Similar to Robinson-Schensted correspondences, I know that there exists a map $W(B_n) \to SBT (n) \...

### Staircase Schur functions squared

Let $\Delta_n$ be the staircase-shaped partition $(n-1,n-2,\dots,1)$. Are there any non-obvious combinatorial objects that index $s_{\Delta_n}^2$? Here, $s_\lambda$ is the Schur function indexed by ...

### Dynamics of RSK

There is a way of viewing the RSK correspondence as a map (in fact, bijection) $A \overset{RSK}\longrightarrow \widehat{A}$ from $n\times n$ matrices with entries $\mathbb{N}$ to (weak) reverse plane ...

### Degeneration of modules over the affine symmetric group and jeu de taquin

Let $H_n$ be the group algebra of the affine Coxeter group of type A (feel free to replace it by the affine Hecke algebra). This is generated by elements $y_i$'s, $i=1,\dots,n$ and transpositions $s_i$...

### Has Reifegerste's Theorem on RSK and Knuth relations received a slick proof by now?

For the notations I am using, I refer to the Appendix at the end of this post.
Here is what, for the sake of this post, I consider to be Reifegerste's theorem:
Theorem 1. Let $n\in\mathbb N$ and $i\...

### Does this lattice have a name (and literature)?

The "lattice" in the title appears to be a lattice. At least it's a poset, which I define now.
Fix a partition $\lambda$ of $n$ and consider the set of all standard Young tableaux (each of $1,\dots,n$...
