A tensor-cube version of the Saxl conjecture
Algebraic Combinatorics, Volume 6 (2023) no. 2, pp. 507-511.

Let n be a positive integer, and let ρ n =(n,n-1,n-2,...,1) be the “staircase” partition of size N=n+1 2. The Saxl conjecture asserts that every irreducible representation S λ of the symmetric group S N appears as a subrepresentation of the tensor square S ρ n S ρ n . In this short note we give two proofs that every irreducible representation of S N appears in the tensor cube S ρ n S ρ n S ρ n .
