"  The stabilizer of immanants "
  Ke Ye  


Immanants are polynomials of degree n in n2 variables associated to irreducible representations of the symmetric group on n elements Sn, they are generalizations of determinant and permanant. I will present 3 different definitions of immanants. M. Antónia Duffner found equations that determine the stabilizer of immanants (except determinant and permanent) in the group GL(E\tensor F). I will state a result that simplified such equations and give some examples.
