Symmetric Group Branching Rules and Tableaux

  • Daniel Bump
Part of the Graduate Texts in Mathematics book series (GTM, volume 225)


If \(G \supset H\) are groups, a branching rule is an explicit description of how representations of G decompose into irreducibles when restricted to H. By Frobenius reciprocity, this is equivalent to asking how representations of H decompose into irreducibles on induction to G. In this chapter, we will obtain the branching rule for the symmetric groups.
