Vertex operators and Hall-Littlewood symmetric functions

Factorization of symmetric polynomials

. We construct linear operators factorizing the three bases of symmetric polynomials: monomial symmetric functions m λ ( x ), elementary sym- metric polynomials E λ ( x ), and Schur functions s λ ( x

Symmetric functions and the centre of the Ringel-Hall algebra of a cyclic quiver

We obtain explicit generators for the centre of the Ringel-Hall algebra of a cyclic quiver and define a canonical algebra monomorphism from Macdonald's ring of symmetric functions to the centre,

Narayana polynomials and Hall-Littlewood symmetric functions

Principal Specialization of Monomial Symmetric Polynomials and Group Determinants of Cyclic Groups

We give explicit expressions of some special values for the monomial symmetric polynomials as applications of symmetric functions and group determinants. We also prove some vanishing or non-vanishing

Green Polynomials and Hall-Littlewood Functions at Roots of Unity

The two conjectures of N. Sultana 17 on specializations of Green polynomials are proved, and classical results concerning characters of the symmetric group induced by maximal cyclic subgroups are generalized.

Reflections on Symmetric Polynomials and Arithmetic Functions

In an isomorphic copy of the ring of symmetric polynomials we study some families of polynomials which are indexed by rational weight vectors. These families include well known symmetric polynomials,

The Hopf structure of symmetric group characters as symmetric functions

In arXiv:1605.06672 the authors introduced inhomogeneous bases of the ring of symmetric functions. The elements in these bases have the property that they evaluate to characters of symmetric groups.

An outline of the proof of the conjecture that the generating function for symmetric plane partitions with at most s rows and each part at most j has an especially simple closed form is given.

A set of generators is exhibited for the centre of the integral group ring of the symmetric group on n letters. As an application, a new proof is obtained of Nakayama’s criterion for two

Synopsis In an attempt to evaluate the integral (5) below, using a decomposition of an orthogonal matrix (Jack 1968), the author is led to define a set of polynomials, one for each partition of an

The characters of the finite general linear groups

Introduction. In this paper we show how to calculate the irreducible characters of the group GL(n, q) of all nonsingular matrices of degree n with coefficients in the finite field of q elements.

Some Basic Hypergeometric Extensions of Integrals of Selberg and Andrews

A. Selberg evaluated an important multivariable extension of the beta function integral. Andrews found a related integral and evaluated it using a result of Dyson, Gunson and Wilson. Basic

Note on Dual Symmetric Functions

§ 1. In an earlier paper, which this note is intended to supplement and in some respects improve, the writer gave a general theorem of duality relating to isobaric determinants with elements Cr and


In this paper, we will develop a theory of C-functions with characters in a division algebra. The ordinary C-function of a division algebra was introduced by K. Hey [4], and generalized by M. Eichler
