  • The right key of a semistandard Young tableau is a tool used to find Demazure characters for sl subscript n(C). This thesis gives methods to obtain the right and left keys by inspection of the semistandard Young tableau. Given a partition lambda and a Weyl group element w, there is a semistandard Young tableau Y subscript lambda(w) of shape lambda that corresponds to w. The Demazure character for lambda and w is known to be the sum of the weights of all tableaux whose right key is dominated by Y subscript lambda (w). The set of all such tableaux is denoted D subscript lambda(w). Exploiting the method mentioned above for obtaining right keys, this thesis describes the entry at each location in any T in D subscript lambda(w). Lastly, we will consider D subscript lambda(w) as an integral subset of Euclidean space. The final results present a condition that is both necessary and sufficient for this subset to be convex.
