Feelin' fine and chipper,
An' then I'd drink some buttermilk
Fresh from out the Dipper.

Hung dazzling diamonds 'round her sails, ghost white.

Quivered her feet, and shook with sheer delight.

In science:

The cyclotomic Schur algebras were introduced by Dipper, James and the author ; by definition these algebras are endomorphism algebras of a direct sum of “permutation modules” for an Ariki-Koike algebra.
The representation theory of the Ariki-Koike and cyclotomic q-Schur algebras
This is generalizes the Dipper-James definition of the q -Schur algebras as endomorphism algebras of tensor space.
The representation theory of the Ariki-Koike and cyclotomic q-Schur algebras
We were interested in these algebras both as another tool for studying the Ariki-Koike algebras and because we hoped that there might be a cyclotomic analogue of the famous Dipper-James theory [27, 39].
The representation theory of the Ariki-Koike and cyclotomic q-Schur algebras
Then, there exist scalars rv ∈ R such that mstLk = rest (k)mst + Xv⊲t As shown in , the general case can be reduced to the case r = 1 where it is a theorem of Dipper and James .
The representation theory of the Ariki-Koike and cyclotomic q-Schur algebras
Actually, Dipper and James showed that the simple H –modules are indexed by e-regular partitions (that is, a partition with no e non-zero parts being equal).
The representation theory of the Ariki-Koike and cyclotomic q-Schur algebras
T s(λ) for When r = 1 this result was first proved by Murphy [100]; the general case can be found in Dipper-James-Mathas .
The representation theory of the Ariki-Koike and cyclotomic q-Schur algebras
Dipper-James theory Let q be a prime power and let GLn (q) be the general linear group over a field with q elements.
The representation theory of the Ariki-Koike and cyclotomic q-Schur algebras
They also make the Dipper-James result on decomposition matrices much more explicit; see [27, Theorem 4.4d].
The representation theory of the Ariki-Koike and cyclotomic q-Schur algebras
See the survey article of Dipper, Geck, Hiss and Malle for the current status of this theory.
The representation theory of the Ariki-Koike and cyclotomic q-Schur algebras
The algebra RS(d) is isomorphic with the q -Schur algebra constructed by Dipper and James [DJ1, DJ2]; the same algebra was also considered by Jimbo [Ji] in the generic case.
Presenting generalized q-Schur algebras
For these types, works of Ariki [Ab], Dipper-James [DJ], Dipper-James-Murphy [DJM], and Hu [H] provide a description of the simple HC -modules.
JMMO Fock space and Geck-Rouquier classification of simple modules for Hecke algebras
Assume that R is a field of characteristic 0, using results of Dipper-Mathas [DM], Ariki-Mathas [AM] and Mathas [Ms], the case where HR,n is not semisimple can be reduced to the case where R = C and where all the ui are powers of v .
JMMO Fock space and Geck-Rouquier classification of simple modules for Hecke algebras
This approach is valid over an arbitrary field F and does not require the Specht module theory of Dipper James and Mathas.
Kashiwara and Zelevinsky involutions in affine type A
Dipper and James [DJ] have shown that q -Schur algebras are fundamental for the modular representation theory of finite general linear groups.
