symmetrica: Library for representation theory#


Symmetrica is a Collection of C routines for representation theory.

It is a program developed by Lehrstuhl Mathematik II of the University of Bayreuth. It has routines to handle the following topics:

  • ordinary representation theory of the symmetric group and related groups (2/11/04)

  • ordinary representation theory of the classical groups

  • modular representation theory of the symmetric group

  • projective representation theory of the symmetric group

  • combinatorics of tableaux

  • symmetric functions and polynomials (7/22/04)

  • commutative and non commutative Schubert polynomials

  • operations of finite groups.

  • ordinary representation theory of Hecke algebras of type A_n
