Higher Mathematics

I was coming home on the Tube just now, and the young man next to me, with a reddish Lenin beard, was reading Chapter 2 - Representations of the Symmetric Group - Dominance and Ordering - Specht Modules.

I almost opened my mouth to say "I bet nobody ever reads that over your shoulder."

But I did not.

On reflection, perhaps it might have appealed to a devotee of Set Theory.
