Using the theory of Kostka polynomials, we prove an An−1 version of Bailey's lemma at integral level. Exploiting a new, conjectural expansion for Kostka numbers, this is then generalized to fractional levels, leading to a new expression for admissible characters of A(1)n−1 and to identities for A-type branching functions. 
Bilateral Bailey lemma and Rogers-Ramanujan identities
A bilateral Bailey lemma is proved and twenty-five transformation formulae between unilateral and bilateral summations for nonterminating basic hypergeometric series are established, including most of Slater's collection of 130 identities. Expand
Bailey Type Transforms and Applications
The aim of this paper is to establish new series transforms of Bailey type and to show that these Bailey type transforms work as efficiently as the classical one and give not only newExpand
A U(n+1) Bailey lattice
Abstract Multiple basic hypergeometric series associated with the unitary group U ( n + 1 ) have been investigated by various authors. The purpose of this paper is to obtain a U ( n + 1 ) analogue ofExpand
New fermionic formula for unrestricted Kostka polynomials
A new fermionic formula for the unrestricted Kostka polynomials of type An-1(1) is presented and is valid for all crystal paths based on Kirillov-Reshetikhin modules, not just for the symmetric and antisymmetric case. Expand
The Cn WP-Bailey chain
Abstract The purpose of this paper is to introduce the concept of Cn WP-Bailey pairs. The Cn WP-Bailey transform is obtained by applying the Cn6ϕ5 summation formula. From this result, the CnExpand

Fermionic Formulas For Unrestricted Kostka Polynomials And Superconformal Characters
The problem of finding fermionic formulas for the many generalizations of Kostka polynomials and for the characters of conformal field theories has been a very exciting research topic for the lastExpand
A new fermionic formula for type A (1) 1 supernomials is presented. This formula is different from the one given by Hatayama et al. (6). A new set of unrestricted rigged configurations is introducedExpand
50 Years of Bailey’s Lemma
Half a century ago, The Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society published W. N. Bailey’s influential paper Identities of the Rogers-Ramanujan type [16]. The main result therein, which wasExpand
What the characters of irreducible subrepresentations of Jordan cells can tell us about LCFT
In this article, we review some aspects of logarithmic conformal field theories (LCFTs) which can be inferred from the characters of irreducible submodules of indecomposable modules. We will mainlyExpand


A Generalization of the Kostka–Foulkes Polynomials
Combinatorial objects called rigged configurations give rise to q-analogues of certain Littlewood–Richardson coefficients. The Kostka–Foulkes polynomials and two-column Macdonald–Kostka polynomialsExpand
Abstract. We announce a higher-dimensional generalization of the Bailey Transform, Bailey Lemma, and iterative “Bailey chain” concept in the setting of basic hypergeometric series very well-poised onExpand
Supernomial Coefficients, Bailey’s Lemma and Rogers—Ramanujan-type Identities
An elementary introduction to the recently introduced A2 Bailey lemma for supernomial coefficients is presented. As illustration, some A2 q-series identities are (re)derived which are naturalExpand
A Higher Level Bailey Lemma: Proof and Application
In a recent letter, new representations were proposed for the pair of sequences (γ,δ), as defined formally by Bailey in his famous lemma. Here we extend and prove this result, providing pairs (γ,δ)Expand

A (k - 1)-fold Eulerian series expansion is given for II(1 - q(n))(-1), where the product runs over all positive integers n that are not congruent to 0,i or - i modulo 2k + 1. The Rogers-RamanujanExpand
Bailey’s Transform, Lemma, Chains and Tree
In this paper we shall provide a brief survey of the work begun by L. J. Rogers and W. N. Bailey which has led to an iterative method for producing infinite chains of (q-series identities. Apart fromExpand

Abstract: Level-restricted paths play an important rôle in crystal theory. They correspond to certain highest weight vectors of modules of quantum affine algebras. We show that the recentlyExpand
