We use a Hamiltonian (transition matrix) description of height-restricted Dyck paths on the plane in which generating functions for the paths arise as matrix elements of the propagator to evaluate the length and area generating function for paths with arbitrary starting and ending points, expressing it as a rational combination of determinants. Exploiting a connection between random walks and quantum exclusion statistics that we previously established, we express this generating function in… Expand

Exclusion statistics and lattice random walks
We establish a connection between exclusion statistics with arbitrary integer exclusion parameter g and a class of random walks on planar lattices. Square lattice random walks, described in terms ofExpand
Exclusion statistics for particles with a discrete spectrum
We formulate and study the microscopic statistical mechanics of systems of particles with exclusion statistics in a discrete one-body spectrum. The statistical mechanics of these systems can beExpand
Lattice walk area combinatorics, some remarkable trigonometric sums and Apéry-like numbers
Abstract Explicit algebraic area enumeration formulae are derived for various lattice walks generalizing the canonical square lattice walks, and in particular for the triangular lattice chiral walksExpand
Skew Schur Function Representation of Directed Paths in a Slit
In this work, we establish a general relationship between the enumeration of weighted directed paths and skew Schur functions, extending work by Bousquet-Melou, who expressed generating functions ofExpand
The algebraic area of closed lattice random walks
We propose a formula for the enumeration of closed lattice random walks of length $n$ enclosing a given algebraic area. The information is contained in the Kreft coefficients which encode, in theExpand
Composition of many spins, random walks and statistics
The multiplicities of the decomposition of the product of an arbitrary number n of spin s states into irreducible SU(2) representations are computed. Two complementary methods are presented, oneExpand
Critical behavior in topological ensembles
We consider the relation between three physical problems: 2D directed lattice random walks, ensembles of $T_{n,n+1}$ torus knots, and instanton ensembles in 5D SQED with one compact dimension inExpand
Generalized Dyck paths of bounded height
Generalized Dyck paths (or discrete excursions) are one-dimensional paths that take their steps in a given finite set S, start and end at height 0, and remain at a non-negative height.Expand

Enumeration of area-weighted Dyck paths with restricted height
This paper derives explicit expressions for $q$-orthogonal polynomials arising in the enumeration of area-weighted Dyck paths with restricted height from the inequality of the following type: For α ≥ 1, β ≥ 1 using LaSalle's inequality. Expand
