Schur-Weyl Duality is a remarkable theorem giving an intimate link between the representation theories of the Symmetric group S_n, and the General Linear group GL(k). Such a link also holds between other objects, in particular the Brauer Algebra and the Orthogonal group, and the Walled Brauer algebra and GL(k). I will give an introduction to these relationships.
