I few month ago I was studying group theory, and the question of How to do Young tableaux in LaTeX pops up.

After question some people, ask in groups and searching in CTAN, here I present the answer, ytableau package.


  • Get the zip package ytableau
  • Open a terminal and run the following series of commands: (you’ll need sudo power)
    $ cd /usr/share/texmf-texlive/tex/latex/
    $ sudo unzip ~/Downloads/ytableau.zip
    $ sudo texhash
  • Now the package is ready to be used!

    Check the manual, inside the zip file or on-line.

    Two days ago I was trying to expand in series a lot of functions… so I ask myself, Could it be done in SAGE? It should be possible… but, How? 😛

    So I ask on google group.

    Solution by Andrzej Chrzeszczyk

    sage: var('r');
            sage: f=2*r/sinh(2*r)
            sage: f.taylor(r,0,5)
            14/45*r^4 - 2/3*r^2 + 1
            sage: maxima(f).powerseries('r',0)

    This solution uses a power series expansion from maxima… really nice feature! Isn’t it?
    Ah… and this expansion is around r=0.

    If one would like the asymptotic expansion r\to\infty,

    sage: maxima(f).powerseries('r',infinity)

    However, note that this expansion coincides with the previous one, i.e., it’s the function itself. It couldn’t be that perfect. 😉

    Solution by Francois Maltey

    Use the Taylor command of SAGE,

  • Around zero
    sage: taylor (2*x/sinh(2*x), x, 0, 10)
            -292/13365*x^10 + 254/4725*x^8 - 124/945*x^6 + 14/45*x^4 - 2/3*x^2 + 1
  • Around infinity… a trick! change x\mapsto 1/x and expand around zero 🙂
    sage: taylor (2*1/x/((exp(2/x)-exp(-2/x))/2), x, 0, 12)
            4*e^(-10/x)/x + 4*e^(-6/x)/x + 4*e^(-2/x)/x
  • Thank you guys!
