Abstract


In 2009 Brundan and Kleshchev transformed the representation theory of the
symmetric groups and related algebras when they proved that the group algebras
of the symmetric groups admit a Z-grading. In this talk, I explain why this
result is important, how it relates to the classical representation theory of
the symmetric groups and how this result can be extended to the alternating
groups.
