Title: Defining an Affine Partition Algebra

Abstract: In this talk we motivate the construction of a new algebra called the affine partition algebra. We summarise some of its basic properties and describe an action which extends the Schur-Weyl duality between the symmetric group and partition algebra. We establish connections to the affine partition category defined recently by Brundan and Vargas and show that such a category is a full subcategory of the Heisenberg category.
