More precisely, we assume that M belongs to [mathematical expression not reproducible] are given, and : stands for the scalar product on the space Sym. The bounds are chosen in this form to ensure their preservation during the homogenization process, as noted in [11] in the case of stationary diffusion equation.
[M.sup.n] [xi] : [xi] [less than or equal to] [O.sup.n] [xi] : [xi], [xi] [member of] Sym.
[M.sup.*] [xi] : [xi] [less than or equal to] [O.sup.n] [xi] : [xi], [xi] [member of] Sym.
This new basis projects onto the Schur basis under the forgetful map and it shares many of the same properties and constructions of the classical basis of Schur functions of Sym. More specifically:
<f g, h> = <g, [f.sup.[perpendicular to]]h> for all g, h [member of] Sym.
While we will follow the foundational results and definitions of references such as [GKLLRT, MR], we have chosen to use notation here which is suggestive of analogous results in Sym.
Now, the result will follow if we can prove that [[bar.[lambda]].sub.1] * [G.sup.[natural]] is in [Sym.sup.[natural]] for any G [member of] Sym.
Note that [??] is by definition a left *-ideal of Sym.
