Applications of q-Lagrange inversion

I was reading a text on q,t-Catalan numbers and Diagonal Harmonics by Haglund, where they mention the following $q$-analogue of Lagrange Inversion, taken from Page 53: Let $e_n, h_n$ denote the ...

Proof of certain $q$-identity for $q$-Catalan numbers

Let us use the standard notation for $q$-integers, $q$-binomials, and the $q$-analog $$\operatorname{Cat}_q(n) := \frac{1}{[n+1]_q} \left[\matrix{2n \\ n}\right]_q.$$ I want to prove that for all ...

Important combinatorial and algebraic interpretations of the coefficients in the polynomial $[n]!_q = (1+q)(1+q+q^2) \ldots (1+q+\cdots + q^{n-1})$

What are some important combinatorial and algebraic interpretations of the coefficients in the polynomial $$[n]!_q = (1+q)(1+q+q^2) \ldots (1+q+\cdots + q^{n-1})?$$ As motivation, I will give ...

$q$-analogs of total positivity

A real matrix $M$ is called totally positive if all of its minors are positive; these matrices have been extensively studied, and there are generalizations to other Lie types, for example by Lusztig. ...

$q$-factorial coefficient asymptotics

Consider the $[n]!_q = \prod\limits_{k = 1}^{n} \frac{q^k - 1}{q - 1} = \sum\limits_{k = 0}^{\binom n 2} c_k q^k$ and let $\{f_n\}_{n \in \mathbb{N}}$ be the sequence of the functions on $[0; 1]$ ...
