Professor Macdonald is a series editor for the Oxford Mathematical Monographs series, and is a key speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians 1998.Review:
"This new edition incorporates the additions to the translated version, as well as a tremendous amount of new material . . . . Readers familiar with the first edition will find that the author's uniquely brief but lucid style has not changed . . . . This masterful new edition will undoubtedly remain the standard reference for symmetric polynomials. It serves as proof of the metatheorem that wherever 'natural' structures indexed by partitions arise, the algebra of symmetric functions is nearby."--Mathematical Reviews
