Title: Weingarten calculus through Weingarten orthogonality relations
Abstract: Weingarten calculus is about computing integrals of polynomial functions with respect to Hear measures on compact groups. The possibility of such a calculus was unveiled by theoretical physicists (including Weingarten) and put in a mathematical framework subsequently (by the presenter and many others). The initial mathematical formulations rely heavily on representation theoretic tools, however Weingarten heuristics relied on an overdetermined set of orthogonality relation. We revisit the very approach of Weingarten and formalize it. It allows us to interpret the Weingarten function as a harmonic function related to a random walk on an appropriate graph, and it yields the uniform estimates for the Weingarten function, which are the best known so far and optimal within a polynomial factor. This is joint work with Sho Matsumoto (Kagoshima).
