From a computational point of view, the job-shop scheduling problem is one of the most notoriously intractable NP-hard optimization problems. In spite of a great deal of substantive research, thereâ€¦ (More)

We determine the blocks of the Brauer algebra in characteristic zero. We also give information on the submodule structure of standard modules for this algebra.

We determine the structure of the partition algebra Pn(Q) (a generalized Temperley-Lieb algebra) for specific values of Q âˆˆ C I, focusing on the quotient which gives rise to the partition function ofâ€¦ (More)

We give an axiomatic framework for studying the representation theory of towers of algebras. We introduce a new class of algebras, contour algebras, generalising (and interpolating between) blobâ€¦ (More)

In this paper we study the partial Brauer C-algebras Rn(Î´, Î´ ), where n âˆˆ N and Î´, Î´ âˆˆ C. We show that these algebras are generically semisimple, construct the Specht modules and determine the Spechtâ€¦ (More)

An accurate estimation of Lagrangian transport in the ocean is important for a number of practical problems such as dispersion of pollutants, biological species, and sediments. Forecasting of theâ€¦ (More)

Beyond a certain heating power, measured and predicted distributions of NBI driven currents deviate from each other even in the absence of MHD instabilities. The most reasonable explanation is aâ€¦ (More)

We construct solutions to Sklyanin's reeection equation in the case in which the bulk Yang-Baxter solution is of Hecke algebra type. Each solution constitutes an extension of the Hecke algebraâ€¦ (More)
