Quasisymmetric Schur functions

Quasisymmetric functions are a generalization of symmetric functions, i.e., functions that are invariant under a certain action of the symmetric group. Like the latter, quasi symmetric functions form a graded algebra, over a commutative ring. The aim of this seminar is to introduce the basic notions on these functions, as well as some bases for this algebra. Within the basie, we highlight the quasisymmetric Schur functions, a recent and natural refinement of the classic Schur functions.
