### Generalizations of generators / hyperplanes descriptions for cones to partially-ordered fields?

Background: given a finite-dimensional real vector space V of dimension d, I can define a pointed cone in two ways: either as a set of the form $\{r_1v_1 + \cdots + r_nv_n \mid r_1, \dots, r_n \in ...

### Is the quasisymmetric expansion of the inner product of two Schur functions known?

The question is in the title, however; there is a Hopf algebra of quasisymmetric functions which has the Hopf algebra of symmetric functions as a sub - Hopf algebra. The quasisymmetric functions have ...

### Comultiplication on Schur functors (& functions). Can it be seen from categorical perspective ?

Consider category of vector spaces. Consider functors from it to itself.
They actually form an algebra - since vector spaces can be added and tensor multiplied.
Question Is there co-product on this ...

### The relation on the set of functions

Let $\varphi: \mathbb{R}^{2} \to \mathbb{R}$ be a symmetric (not necessarily continuous) function (so, $\varphi(x,y)=\varphi(y,x)$ $\forall (x,y)\in \mathbb{R}^{2}$),
let $\mathcal{F}$ be the set of ...

### root system generalizations of Sekiguchi-Debiard (aka Laplace-Beltrami) operators

For the root system $A_n$, taking the limit $q = t^\alpha$ and $t \to 1$, and letting $Y = (t-1) X -1$ one obtains from the Macdonald operator the so-called Sekiguchi-Debiard operator:
$$D_\alpha(X) ...
