    I have added the statement, with all its ingredients.

    Not fully proof-read yet, but need to urgently do something else for the moment.

    adding the hyphen to the title, since apparently the name does not refer to “content of hooks” but to “hooks and content” of boxes. I have added a line on this point to the entry,

    We should have something on the relationship between hook lengths and rep dimensions. So for Sym(n)Sym(n), the dimension of the rep corresponding to YT λ\lambda is

    n! u:λh λ(u). \frac{n!}{\prod_{u: \lambda} h_{\lambda(u)}}.

    I have now added statement of and references for the actual/standard form of the hook-content formula:

    |ssYTableaux λ(N)|=s λ(x 1=1,,x N=1)=(i,j)N+content(i,j)hook λ(i,j). \left\vert ssYTableaux_\lambda(N)\right\vert \;=\; s_{\lambda} \big( x_1 \!=\! 1, \cdots, x_N \!=\! 1 \big) \;\; = \;\; \underset{ (i,j) }{\prod} \frac{ N + content(i,j) }{ \ell hook_\lambda(i,j) } \,.

    I am indebted to Abdelmalek Abdesselam for hints. (The combinatorics literature is a bit weird about this.)
