Abstract
Schubert calculus is the modern approach to classical problems in enumerative algebraic geometry, specifically on flag varieties and their many generalizations. Crystals are combinatorial tools based on quantum groups which arise in the study of representations of Lie algebras. Whittaker functions are special functions on Lie groups or padic groups, for example GL(n,F) where F might be the real or complex numbers, or a padic field.
The area of intersection between these three topics is combinatorial representation theory. Common tools such as Demazure operators, the Bruhat partial order, and Macdonald polynomials appear in all three areas. Some connections between these three areas are quite new. This workshop will explore these connections.
