|TITLE||An introduction to quasisymmetric functions, Schur functions and their intersection I|
In algebraic combinatorics, a central area of study is Schur functions. These functions were introduced early in the last century with respect to representation theory, and since then have become important in other areas such as quantum physics and algebraic geometry.
