From the Author:

The SF package consists of ~23 Maple programs that provide an environment for computations involving symmetric functions and related structures. The users I developed this package for consist primarily of colleagues who use symmetric functions in their research. For example, this package is likely to be (and already has been) useful for problems involving

- Polya-Redfield-style enumeration and tableaux enumeration.
- Characters of the symmetric groups and the (complex) general linear groups.
- Classical invariant theory.
- Hall-Littlewood functions and Kostka-Foulkes polynomials.
- Zonal spherical functions for GL_n/O_n.
- Macdonald's two-parameter symmetric functions.
