Title: The KPRV theorem via paths
Abstract: Let V and V' be irreducible representations of a complex
semisimple Lie algebra g with highest weight vectors v and v' of weights m
and m' respectively. For w in the Weyl group, let M(m,m',w) denote the
cyclic gsubmodule of V tensor V' generated by the vector v tensor wv'
(where wv' denotes a nonzero vector in V' of weight wm'). It was
conjectured by Kostant and proved by Kumar that the irreducible
representation V(m,m',w) whose highest weight is the unique dominant Weyl
conjugate of m+wm' occurs with multiplicity exactly one in the
decomposition of M(m,m',w) into irreducibles. Since M(m,m',w0) equals
V tensor V', where w0 denotes the longest element of the Weyl group, it
follows from this that V(m,m',w) occurs in the decomposition of V tensor
V'. This corollary was conjectured earlier by Parthasarathy, Ranga Rao,
and Varadarajan (PRV) and proved by Mathieu independently of Kumar.
There's a subsequent proof by Littelmann of the PRV conjecture using his
theory of LakshmibaiSeshadri paths. I will talk about joint work with
Mrigendra Kushwaha and Sankaran Viswanath where we consider such a path
approach to Kostant's refinement of the PRV.

Venue: Conference Room, Department of Mathematics
Abstract: We discuss the approximation problems between two weighted sums
of the form $w_1X_1+ \ldots +wn_Xn$, where the weights are fixed and the
$Xi$'s are independent or weakly dependent random variables. The Kolmogorov
metric is used to obtain the estimates which, in general, are of the order
$O(n^{1/2}$.
