Résume  The partition algebra was originally defined by Paul Martin. Over the complex numbers, it satisfies a double centraliser property with the symmetric group via their actions on a tensor space. In this talk I will discuss the representation theory of the partition algebra both over the complex numbers (due to P. Martin) and over a field of positive characteristic (joint work with C. Bowman and O. King), and present some applications to the representation theory of the symmetric group (joint with C. Bowman and R. Orellana).
