                   Polynomial functors and categorifications
 
Abstract:
I will explain how to categorify various Fock space representation structures
on the algebra of symmetric functions via the category of strict polynomial
functors. We enrich Schur-Weyl duality functor to a morphism of Kac-Moody and
Heisenberg categorifications. This is a joint work with O.Yacobi.
