In the aim to understand the generalization of Stirling numbers occurring in the bosonic normal ordering problem, several combinatorial models have been proposed. In particular, Blasiak \emph{et al.} defined combinatorial objects allowing to interpret the number of $S_{\bf{r,s}}(k)$ appearing in the identity $(a^\dag)^{r_n}a^{s_n}\cdots(a^\dag)^{r_1}a^{s_1}=(a^\dag)^\alpha\displaystyle\sum S_{\bf{r,s}}(k)(a^\dag)^k a^k$, where $\alpha$ is assumed to be non-negative. These objects are used to…

In this paper, we report on recent progress concerning combinatorial aspects of normal ordering. After giving a short introduction to the history and motivation of normal ordering, we present some


The Boson Normal Ordering Problem and Generalized Bell Numbers
AbstractFor any function F(x) having a Taylor expansion we solve the boson normal ordering problem for $F [(a^\dag)^r a^s]$, with r, s positive integers, $F [(a, a^\dag]=1$, i.e., we provide exact
Combinatorial approach to generalized Bell and Stirling numbers and boson normal ordering problem
We consider the numbers arising in the problem of normal ordering of expressions in boson creation a† and annihilation a operators ([a,a†]=1). We treat a general form of a boson string

On the Structure of Hopf Algebras
induced by the product M x M e M. The structure theorem of Hopf concerning such algebras has been generalized by Borel, Leray, and others. This paper gives a comprehensive treatment of Hopf algebras
Combinatorial algebra for second-quantized Quantum Theory
We describe an algebra G of diagrams that faithfully gives a diagrammatic representation of the structures of both the Heisenberg–Weyl algebra H – the associative algebra of the creation and
Combinatorics and Boson normal ordering: A gentle introduction
We discuss a general combinatorial framework for operator ordering problems by applying it to the normal ordering of the powers and exponential of the boson number operator. The solution of the
Combinatorics of boson normal ordering and some applications
We provide the solution to the normal ordering problem for powers and exponentials of two classes of operators. The first one consists of boson strings and more generally homogeneous polynomials,
Commutative combinatorial Hopf algebras
Abstract We propose several constructions of commutative or cocommutative Hopf algebras based on various combinatorial structures and investigate the relations between them. A commutative Hopf
