ABSTRACT | I will survey an analogue of textbook tableau combinatorics (Young tableaux and Schur functions). This analogue originally arose to address questions about the K-theory of the Grassmannian. However, over the past decade, the combinatorics has become part of a broader conversation in algebraic and enumerative combinatorics, e.g., Hopf algebras, cyclic sieving, Demazure characters, homomesy, longest increasing subsequences of random words, poset edge densities and plane partitions. I will give an overview of results of many people including those I have jointly obtained with Oliver Pechenik (U. Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) and with Hugh Thomas (U. Quebec at Montreal).
