This article serves as an introduction to several recent developments in the study of quasisymmetric functions. The focus of this survey is on connections between quasisymmetric functions and the combinatorial Hopf algebra of noncommutative symmetric functions, appearances of quasisymmetric functions within the theory of Macdonald polynomials, and analogues of symmetric functions. Topics include the significance of quasisymmetric functions in representation theory (such as representations of the 0-Hecke algebra), recently discovered bases (including analogues of well-studied symmetric function bases), and applications to open problems in symmetric function theory.



I am very grateful to Hélène Barcelo, Gizem Karaali, and Rosa Orellana for inviting me to produce this chapter. I would also like to thank Ed Allen, Susanna Fishel, Josh Hallam, Jim Haglund, and John Shareshian for helpful feedback along the way. Finally, I greatly appreciate the insightful comments from a diligent anonymous referee.
