Notes from the workshop

This workshop will include expository talks as well as presentations on current research on interactions between Algebraic Combinatorics, Algebraic Geometry and Group Representation Theory, with an emphasis on the study of subjects such as the Cohomology of Schubert Varieties, Hilbert Schemes, Gromov-Witten Invariants, Group Invariant Theory, Coinvariant spaces and their diagonal analogs, and various ties between these questions with Symmetric Functions and Schubert Polynomials.

This workshop is preceeded by the School on Algebraic Geometry and Algebraic Combinatorics.
