Asymptotics of the maximal and the typical dimensions of isotypic components of tensor representations of the symmetric group

By Sevak Mkrtchyan

Abstract

AbstractVershik and Kerov gave asymptotical bounds for the maximal and the typical dimensions of irreducible representations of symmetric groups Sn. It was conjectured by Olshanski that the maximal and the typical dimensions of the isotypic components of tensor representations of the symmetric group admit similar asymptotical bounds. The main result of this article is the proof of this conjecture. Consider the natural representation of Sn on (CN)⊗n. Its isotypic components are parametrized by Young diagrams with n cells and at most N rows. Biane found the limit shape of Young diagrams when n→∞,n/N→c. By showing that this limit shape is the unique solution to a variational problem, it is proven here, that after scaling, the maximal and the typical dimensions of isotypic components lie between positive constants. A new proof of Biane’s limit-shape theorem is obtained
