You are here on the first page of Xavier Viennot's new website: www.viennot.org
during the construction the "old" website www.xavierviennot.org is still active,
together with the sub-websites (Part I and II) dedicated to the "Bijective Combinatorial Course" I am giving at IMSc, Chennai, India.
Part I: An introduction to enumerative, algebraic and bijective combinatorics (January-March 2016)
Part II: Commutations and heaps of pieces with interactions in physics,
mathematics and computer science (January-March 2017)
The Bijective Combinatorics Course, Part III:
The cellular ansatz: bijective combinatorics and quadratic algebra
Robinson-Schensted-Knuth, Asymmetric Exclusion Process, Tilings, Alternating Sign Matrices ... under the same roof
The Institute of Mathematical Sciences (IMSc), Chennai, India (January-March 2018)
Monday and Thursday, 11h30-13h, video room, first class: 4th January
A mirror image of this website is accessible here at IMSc.

Growth diagrams, local rules and beyond
slides part I (pdf, 17 Mo)
slides part II (pdf, 15 Mo)
Robinson-Schensted-Knuth correspondence (RSK), Schützenberger "jeu de taquin", Littlewood-Richarson coefficients are very classical objects in the combinatorics of Young tableaux, Schur functions and representation theory. Description has been given by Fomin in terms of "growth diagrams" and operators satisfying the commutation rules of the Weyl-Heisenberg algebra. After a survey of Fomin's approach, I will make a slight shift by introducing an equivalent description with "local rules on edges", and show how such point of view can be extended to some other quadratic algebras.
