Title: Plane partitions
Abstract: Plane partitions are a two-dimensional generalisation of integer partitions. There are many beautiful formulae for the enumeration of plane partitions which reveal a close connection to the representation theory of classical groups and infinite dimensional Lie algebras. I will try to explain some of these connections in a way that is accessible to the non-expert. If time permits, I will end my talk describing a number of recent conjectures concerning an affine analogue of plane partitions.
