Honours Thesis: Generalised Selberg Integrals and Macdonald Polynomials

My honours thesis concerned the Selberg integral. In particular the close relationship between Knizhnik–Zamolodchikov equations, Macdonald polynomials, and generalised Selberg integrals. For those interested, here is a review article concerning the history and mathematics surrounding Selberg's integral.

Here is a copy of my thesis (pdf 15/06/18).
