Abstract

We determine the necessary and sufficient combinatorial conditions for which the tensor product of two irreducible polynomial representations of $\GL(n,\mathbb{C})$ is isomorphic to another. As a consequence we discover families of Littlewood--Richardson coefficients that are non-zero, and a condition on Schur non-negativity.
Keywords: polynomial representation, symmetric function, Littlewood--Richardson coefficient, Schur non-negative polynomial representation, symmetric function, Littlewood--Richardson coefficient, Schur non-negative
