In my thesis we present the classical material of the theory of symmetric functions, with applications to the study of the characters of the symmetric group. Furthermore, we study the problem of deciding when a collection of Newton polynomials (or power sums) generate the field of rational symmetric functions. In particular, we present the following origin result: in positive characteristic p the polynomials Na=xa+ya, Nb=xb+yb, Nc=xc+yc generate the symmetric field in x,y whenever a,b,c are relatively prime integers such that a,b,c,a-b,a-c,b-c are prime to p. We also give a counterexample showing that it is necessary to require that the differences are prime to p.
