Abstract: We survey three recent breakthroughs in algebraic combinatorics. The first is the proof by Knutson and Tao, and later Derksen and Weyman, of the saturation conjecture for Littlewood-Richardson coefficients. The second is the proof of the $n!$ and $(n+1)^{n-1}$ conjectures by Haiman. The final breakthrough is the determination by Baik, Deift, and Johansson of the limiting behavior of the length of the longest increasing subsequence of a random permutation.
