Multiplying Schur functions. (English) Zbl 0557.20008
The authors discuss a combinatorial rule for expanding the product of Schur functions as a sum of Schur functions. They claim it to be new, but it is in fact H. O. Foulkes’ “line of route” method [cf. Discrete Math. 15, 235–252 (1976; Zbl 0338.05002)].
