I am looking for a short pedagogical introduction to Young-tableaux and weight diagrams and the relationship between them. Hopefully one which would contain many detailed and worked out examples of applications of these methods in physics.

I am looking for a resource that is dedicated specifically to this topic, which I can easily print out, as opposed to a heavy general group-theory textbook.

    $\begingroup$ I don't know what "pedagogical" means in this context. What is a non-pedagogical introduction? $\endgroup$ Dec 11, 2015 at 2:13
  • $\begingroup$ @angryavian the short survey link is broken. Please fix. $\endgroup$
