Algebra seminar in Lincoln: talk by Stacey Law

On Wednesday the 14th of February, Stacey Law (Cambridge) visited Lincoln and gave a talk “On the p’-subgraph of the Young graph“.

Abstract:  Let p be a prime number and n any natural number. Let \chi be an ordinary irreducible character of the symmetric group {\frak S}_n whose degree is coprime to p. We study the number of p'-irreducible constituents of the restriction and induction to {\frak S}_{n-1} and {\frak S}_{n+1}, respectively. This generalizes the work of Ayyer, Prasad, and Spallone for the prime p=2. This is joint work with E. Giannelli and S. Martin.
