### Reference request: two parameter analogy of the Waring formula.

Let $$p_k(t_1, \ldots, t_m)=t_1^k + \cdots + t_m^k$$ be the power sum symmetric functions and $$e_n(t_1, \ldots, t_m)=\sum_{1 \leq i_1 < \cdots < i_m\leq m} t_{i_1}\cdots t_{i_n}$$ the ...

### References request: representations of Heisenberg algebra.

Let $p_1, p_2, \ldots$, be the power sum symmetric functions. Let $p_n^* = n \frac{\partial}{\partial p_n}$. Then $$ p_n^* p_m - p_m p_n^* = \delta_{m, n} 1. $$
Where could I find this result in some ...

The thought process that led me to this question is that the identity
$$ \left(\prod_i \frac1{1-x_i}\right)\left(\prod_i {1-x_i}\right)=1$$
can be understood as expressing exactness of the Koszul ...
