Title: “Cold atoms, SU(N) symmetry and Young tableaux”

Abstract:  Symmetries play a foundational role in our understanding of physics.
 It is often the case that unexpected symmetries can emerge from unexpected places.
I will discuss a particular example in systems of cold atoms that realize SU(N) symmetry,
where N can be as large as ~10.  I will then describe how these systems can be treated
numerically by using results on the symmetric group dating back to Young.
