Polynomials as characters

A polynomial in variables x1,x2,... can be interpreted as a sequence of characters, one for each symmetric group. Using such polynomials, we have tried to understand Kronecker coefficients and restriction coefficients, two elusive families of numbers that arise in representation theory. This talk is based on ongoing collaboration with Digjoy Paul (TIFR), Shraddha Srivastava (Uppsala) and Sridhar Narayanan (IMSc).
