## Symmetric functions in superspace

##### Abstract:

We will discuss how the theory of symmetric functions can be extended to the supersymmetric case, involving anti-commuting variables in addition to those that commute. We shall see how beautiful combinatorics arises from the super-extension of classical symmetric functions.
