If you have a question about this talk, please contact Eugenio Giannelli. We discuss how diagrammatically defined algebras (arising from physics and knot theory) can be used to solve classical problems in the representation theory of reflection and matrix groups. Depending on the whim of the speaker, we will discuss either: recent advances in our understanding of the Kronecker and Plethysm coefficients via Schur-Weyl duality, or the structure of simple modules of complex reflection groups and their deformations.
