4:00 pm Wednesday, November 9, 2011 Geometry-Analysis Seminar: The entropy of Schur-Weyl measuresby
Sevak Mkrtchyan (Rice University) in HB 227- Relative dimensions of the isotypic components of the N-th order tensor representations of the symmetric group on n letters define a Plancherel-type measure, called the Schur-Weyl measure, on the space of Young diagrams with n cells and at most N rows. We obtain logarithmic, order-sharp bounds for the maximal dimensions of the isotypic components of the tensor representations, and prove that the typical dimensions, after appropriate normalization, converge to a constant with respect to the Schur-Weyl measures. The constant can be interpreted as the entropy of the Schur-Weyl measures.
