1. Ly, Megan Danielle. Schur – Weyl Duality for Unipotent Upper Triangular Matrices.

Degree: PhD, 2018, University of Colorado

Schur – Weyl duality is a fundamental framework in combinatorial representation theory. It intimately relates the irreducible representations of a group to the irreducible representations of its centralizer algebra. We investigate the analogue of Schur – Weyl duality for the group of unipotent upper triangular matrices over a finite field. In this case, the character theory of these upper triangular matrices is "wild" or unattainable. Thus we employ a generalization, known as supercharacter theory, that creates a striking variation on the character theory of the symmetric group with combinatorics built from set partitions. In this thesis, we present a combinatorial formula for calculating a restriction and induction of supercharacters based on statistics of set partitions and seashell inspired diagrams. We use these formulas to create a graph that encodes the decomposition of a tensor space, and develop an analogue of Young tableaux, known as shell tableaux, to index paths in this graph. These paths also help determine a basis for the maps that centralize the action of the group of unipotent upper triangular matrices. We construct a part of this basis by determining copies of certain modules inside a tensor space to construct projection maps onto supermodules that act on a standard basis.

2. Shannon, Erica Hilary. Computing Invariant Forms for Lie Algebras Using Heaps.

Degree: PhD, Mathematics, 2016, University of Colorado

In this thesis, I present a combinatorial formula for a symmetric invariant quartic form on a spin module for the simple Lie algebra d6. This formula relies on a description of this spin module as a vector space with weights, and weight vectors, indexed by ideals of a particular heap. I describe a new statistic, the profile, on pairs of heap ideals. The profile efficiently encodes the shape of the symmetric difference between the two ideals and demonstrates the available actions of the Weyl group and Lie algebra on any given pair. From the profile, I identify a property called a crossing. The actions of the Weyl group and Lie algebra on pairs of weights may be interpreted as adding or removing crossings between the corresponding ideals. Using the crossings, I present a formula for the symmetric invariant quartic form on a spin module for d6, and discuss potential applications to other closely related minuscule representations.
