Dimension of the space of tensors obtained by making partial symmetrizations and skew-symmetrizations.

Let $A=(a_{i_1\dots i_k})_{i_1,\dots,i_k=1}^n$ be a higher order cubic tensor or hypermatrix. The following two facts are well-known and are easy to prove: ${(\bf 1) }$ The dimension of the ...

Is there a rigorous exposition of 'tensor methods' for finding lie group representations?

I've seen tensor methods in physics for finding lie group representations, as in Wu-Ki Tungs Group Theory in Physics, which uses tensors physics style, ie with indices; and Cvitonovics Birdtracks, ...

Reference for densities and pseudoforms and non-tensorial representations of $\operatorname{GL}(n)$ and associated vector bundles

I'm looking for a reference that will set me straight on a few things. It started out with densities. In John Lee's book, "Introduction to Smooth Manifolds", densities on vector spaces are functions ...
