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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 $\mathcal{H}=\mathcal{H}_1 \otimes \mathcal{H}_2 \otimes \ldots \otimes \mathcal{H}_S$, ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
