Partition complexes, duality and integral tree representations

Abstract

We show that the poset of non-trivial partitions of {1,2,,n} has a fundamental homology class with coefficients in a Lie superalgebra. Homological duality then rapidly yields a range of known results concerning the integral representations of the symmetric groups Σn and Σn+1 on the homology and cohomology of this partially-ordered set.
