We study the Schur polynomial expansion of a family of symmetric polynomials related to the refined enumeration of alternating sign matrices with respect to their inversion number, complementary inversion number and the position of the unique $1$ in the top row. We prove that the expansion can be expressed as a sum over totally symmetric plane partitions and we are also able to determine the coefficients. This establishes a new connection between alternating sign matrices and a class of plane…

Alternating sign matrices with reflective symmetry and plane partitions: $n+3$ pairs of equivalent statistics

. Vertically symmetric alternating sign matrices (VSASMs) of order 2 n + 1 are known to be equinumerous with lozenge tilings of a hexagon with side lengths 2 n + 2 , 2 n, 2 n + 2 , 2 n, 2 n + 2 , 2 n



Vertically Symmetric Alternating Sign Matrices and a Multivariate Laurent Polynomial Identity

This paper shows how an attempt to prove that the numbers appearing in a conjecture concerning the number of vertically symmetric alternating sign matrices establish the solution of a linear equation system similar to the one for the ordinary refined ASM numbers naturally leads to a more general conjectural multivariate Laurent polynomial identity.

The Enumeration of Totally Symmetric Plane Partitions

Abstract A plane partition is totally symmetric if, as an order ideal of N 3 , it is invariant under all (six) permutations of the coordinate axes. We prove an explicit product formula for the number

The relation between alternating sign matrices and descending plane partitions: $n+3$ pairs of equivalent statistics

There is the same number of n×n alternating sign matrices (ASMs) as there is of descending plane partitions (DPPs) with parts no greater than n, but finding an explicit bijection is an open problem
