MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This work is an introduction to the representation theory of the symmetric group. Unlike other books on the subject this text deals with the symmetric group from three different points of view: general representation theory, combinatorial algorithms and symmetric functions. ... This book is a digestible text for a graduate student and is also useful for a researcher in the field of algebraic combinatorics for reference." (Attila Maroti, Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum, Vol. 68, 2002)

"A classic gets even better. ... The edition has new material including the Novelli-Pak-Stoyanovskii bijective proof of the hook formula, Stanley's proof of the sum of squares formula using differential posets, Fomin's bijective proof of the sum of squares formula, group acting on posets and their use in proving unimodality, and chromatic symmetric functions." (David M. Bressoud, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 964, 2001)
