The Kronecker coefficient \(g_{\lambda \mu \nu}\) is the multiplicity of the \(GL(V)\times GL(W)\)irreducible \(V_\lambda \otimes W_\mu\) in the restriction of the \(GL(X)\)irreducible \(X_\nu\) via the natural map \(GL(V)\times GL(W) \to GL(V \otimes W)\), where \(V, W\) are \(\mathbb{C}\)vector spaces and \(X = V \otimes W\). A fundamental open problem in algebraic combinatorics is to find a positive combinatorial formula for these coefficients.
The authors construct two quantum objects for this problem, which they call the nonstandard quantum group and nonstandard Hecke algebra. They show that the nonstandard quantum group has a compact real form and its representations are completely reducible, that the nonstandard Hecke algebra is semisimple, and that they satisfy an analog of quantum SchurWeyl duality.
