### How to compute the rook polynomial of a Ferrers board?

Given a Ferrers board of shape $(b_1,\ldots,b_m)$, we define $r_k$ as number of ways to place $k$ non-attacking rooks (as in Chess). In section 2.4 of Stanley's Enumerative Combinatorics (vol. 1) it's ...

### Euler characteristics and operator indices as exponents for Laurent polynomials

This question is rather vague. Are there any natural situations which involve Laurent polynomials of the form
$$\sum q^{a_i}\in\mathbb{Z}[q,q^{-1}]$$
where the $a_i$'s are either Euler characteristics ...

### Can you find linear recurrence relation for dimensions of invariant tensors?

Let $V$ be a finite dimensional highest weight representation of a (semi)-simple Lie algebra. For each $n\ge 0$ take $a_n$ to be the dimension of the space of invariant tensors in $\otimes^n V$.
In ...

### Which Hadamard Products of Generating Functions Are Known?

The Hadamard product, Schur product, or entrywise product of two generating functions is computed as follows:
The Hadamard Product, H(x), given two generating functions f(x) and g(x) where
$$ f(x) = ...

### What classes am I missing in the Picard lattice of a Kummer K3 surface?

Constructing the Kummer K3 of an Abelian surface $A$, we have an obvious 22-dimensional collection of classes in $H^2(K3, \mathbb{Z})$ given by the 16 (-2)-curves (which by construction do not ...

### Generating-functions: is there a relationship between a generating function and the corresponding squared generating function

Let's say we have a sequence $T(n)$ with the corresponding generating function
$$A(t) = \sum_{n = 0}^\infty T(n) t^n$$
Is there some relationship between the two functions $A(t)$ and $A(t^2)$? And ...

### Asymptotics of a hypergeometric series/Taylor series coefficient.

I was planning on figuring this problem out for myself, but I also wanted to try out mathoverflow. Here goes:
I wanted to know the asymptotics of the sum of the absolute values of the Fourier-Walsh ...
