# Kirillov’s Seminar on Representation Theory

Share this page *Edited by *
*G. I. Olshanski*

This book is a collection of selected papers written by students and active
participants of the A. A. Kirillov seminar on representation theory held at
Moscow University. The papers deal with various aspects of representation
theory for Lie algebras and Lie groups, and its relationship to algebraic
combinatorics, the theory of quantum groups and geometry.

This volume reflects current research interests of the leading representatives
of the Russian school of representation theory. Readers will find both a
variety of new results (for such quickly developing fields as infinite
dimensional algebras and quantum groups) and a new look at classical aspects of
the theory. Among the contributions, S. Kerov's paper—the first survey of
various topics in representation theory of the infinite symmetric groups,
classical orthogonal polynomials, Markov's moment problem, random measures, and
operator theory, unified around the concept of interlacing measures—describes
the unexpected relationships between distant domains of mathematics, and an
expository paper by Y. Neretin presents a new geometric approach to boundaries
and compactifications of reductive groups and symmetric spaces.

#### Readership

Graduate students, research mathematicians, and mathematical physicists interested in representation theory, infinite dimensional Lie algebras, quantum groups, and algebraic combinatorics.
