Title: Studies in the representation theory of G wreath S_n
Speaker: Ashish Mishra, IIT Bombay
Abstract: This thesis studies two topics in the representation theory of $G\sim S_n$ ($G$ wreath $S_n$). The first part is concerned with explicit block diagonalization of the commutant of the wreath product action on generalized Boolean algebras and the second part is concerned with Pushkarev's extension to $G$ wreath $S_n$ of the Vershik-Okounkov theory of complex irreducible representations of $S_n$.
