September 19, 2019
The Robinson-Schensted-Knuth (RSK) correspondence is an important combinatorial bijection that associates to any permutation a pair of objects called standard Young tableaux. We will describe this correspondence in detail and discuss some interesting connections to combinatorics, algebra, and geometry. This talk will assume no background and will be accessible to all undergraduates.
