    This dissertation presents connections between cluster algebras and discrete integrable systems, especially T-systems and their specializations/generalizations. We give connections between the T-system or the octahedron ...

    A central result in algebraic combinatorics is the Littlewood-Richardson rule that governs products in the cohomology of Grassmannians. A major theme of the modern Schubert calculus is to extend this rule and its associated ...

    Nakajima introduced a t-deformation of q-characters, (q,t)-characters for short, and their twisted multiplication through the geometry of quiver varieties. The Nakajima (q, t)-characters of Kirillov-Reshetikhin modules ...

    A. Lascoux and M.-P. Schutzenberger introduced Schubert polynomials to study the cohomology ring of the complete flag variety Fl(C^n). Each Schubert polynomial corresponds to the class defined by a Schubert variety X_w ...

    We study tau-functions given as matrix elements for the action of loop groups, $\widehat{GL_n}$ on $n$-component fermionic Fock space. In the simplest case, $n=2$, the tau-functions are equal to Hankel determinants and ...

  • Sun, Hao (2018-04-18)
    This thesis is motivated by the W-operators introduced by Mironov et al. We prove that the W-operators are generalizations of the cut-and-join operator studied by Goulden and Jackson. We give a new description of the ...
