Symmetric functions are symmetric polynomials, in finitely many, or countably infinitely many variables. They arise in the representation theory of symmetric groups and in the polynomial representation theory of general linear groups. Bases of the ring of symmetric functions are indexed by integer ...

### analogues of power sum polynomials for symmetric Laurent polynomials

To deal with root systems of type B C D, one needs to understand symmetric Laurent polynomials $\Lambda$. I am wondering if the naive definition of power sum symmetric Laurent polynomials form a basis ...

### Picking $n$ so that certain Schur functors of the standard representation of $S_n$ are linearly independent

Let $V_n$ be the standard permutation representation of the symmetric group $S_n$, and let $\mathbb{S}_{\lambda}$ denote the Schur functor associated to the partition $\lambda$. Let $\lambda$ range ...

### Need explicit formula for reversion of a Chern-character-like series

On the first sight this looks like homotopy theory question but actually came from need to simplify some expressions related to the Rasch model from the Item Response Theory. Let  s=\sum_i\frac{...

### What is the definition of plethysm in the representation theory of permutation groups

Let $s_\lambda \circ s_\mu$ be a plethysm. Here let $\lambda, \mu$ be $m,n$ box Young diagrams. I have seen the definition of plethysms in symmetric functions. I would like to understand the ...

### Evaluation of Macdonald Polynomials at $x_1=x_2=…=x_n = h$

This question is related to my previous question (here). Let $P_\lambda$(q,t) be the Macdonald polynomials with partition $\lambda$. Let $\Lambda$ denote the ring of symmetric functions over the ...

### Character sums over a fixed subset of skew tableaux

Let $f(\lambda)$ count the number standard young tableaux of shape $\lambda\vdash n$ and $\lambda=(\lambda_1,\cdots,\lambda_r)$. Let $\mu \vdash k$ be a partition for $k<n$. It is a consequence of ...

### How should this multinomial identity be written?

Question if it is correct, how is the identity tagged (4) below usually written, and can the use of conjugate partitions be avoided? Motivation I apologize for the length of this question - it's as ...

### counting how many boxes from a given Young tableau contribute to hook length made out of two YTs

Think of a Young diagram as a collection of rows with numbers of elements $\mu_1 \geq \mu_2 \geq \cdots \geq \mu_d \geq \mu_{d+1}=0$ (and $\mu_k=0$ for $k>d$) and define for $s=(i,j)$ (where $i$ ...

### 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 ...

### Generalized Schur polynomial from block Toeplitz matrices

By using the Jacobi-Trudi identity, one may interpret banded Toeplitz matrices, and minors of such matrices in terms of Schur polynomials, see for example http://www-stat.stanford.edu/~cgates/PERSI/...
