Title: The crystal perspective on Schur-Weyl duality
Abstract: Crystals are a combinatorial model for representations of semisimple Lie groups. I will discuss crystals for GL_n representations and the combinatorial avatar of Schur-Weyl duality (or more accurately, of the decomposition of the dth tensor power of \bbC^n into GL_n irreducibles). I will not assume any background in combinatorics.
