The Kronecker product of two Schur functions sµ and sν, denoted by sµ ∗ sν, is the Frobenius characteristic of the tensor product of the irreducible representations of the symmetric group corresponding to the partitions µ and ν. The coefficient of sλ in this product is denoted by γ λ µν , and corresponds to the multiplicity of the irreducible character χ λ in χ µχ ν We use Sergeev’s Formula for a Schur function of a difference of two alphabets and the comultiplication expansion for sλ[XY ] to find closed formulas for the Kronecker coefficients γ λ µν when λ is an arbitrary shape and µ and ν are hook shapes or two-row shapes.

Simon Stevin 1, 1994, pp. 649–683. derived some closed formulas for the Kronecker product of Schur functions indexed by two-row shapes or hook shapes using a different approach. We believe that the approach of this paper is more natural. The formulas obtained are simpler and reflect the symmetry of the Kronecker product. |
