NSF/CBMS Regional Conference on Algebraic Combinatorics
at North Carolina State University
June 4-8, 2001
Principal Speaker: Alain
Universite de Marne-la-Vallee, will deliver 10
lectures on Multivariate Polynomials
Special lecture notes of Prof. Lascoux will be
published by CBMS and AMS.
The conference will be devoted to the theory
of symmetric functions, Schubert polynomials and their connections to other
fields. Recent advances on quantum groups further testify its far reaching
applications. Professor Lascoux is one
of the leading contributors in this area. He
will give a down-to-earth and penetrating lectures on the fascinating subject.
The talks are aimed to survey current research and provide introduction
to new comers.
Other speakers include:
S. Ariki (Tokyo), M. Kleber (MIT), J. Morse (U.
Penn), M. Okado (Osaka), P. Pragacz (Polish Int of Math & Max-Planck),
A. Schilling (MIT), M. Shimozono (Virginia Tech), M. Vazirani (Berkeley),
M. Vybornov(Duke), M. Zabrocki (York).
Limited funds are available to support participants.
Priorities will be given to students and underpresented
groups of researchers. Please register
