Representation theory has often been a key to unlocking problems of enumeration and structure for our favorite combinatorial objects. In the reverse direction, answering many of the central questions of representation theory required development of sophisticated combinatorial techniques and constructions. This interplay, which has only intensified in recent years, will be at the focus of the workshop. Potential topics to be discussed include (the combinatorial aspects of):
- quiver representations;
- cluster algebras;
- Macdonald and LLT polynomials;
- representation-theoretic techniques in quantum/statistical mechanics;
- generalized Littlewood-Richardson rules, Schur-positivity, and connections with Schubert calculus;
- crystal bases and graphs;
- affine Grassmannians, Mirkovic-Vilonen cycles;
- dual canonical and semi-canonical bases;
- Horn and Deligne-Simpson problems;
- tropical calculus in representation theory.
A relatively small number of talks should leave ample time for informal discussions and presentations.
