The Real-rootedness of Generalized Narayana Polynomials

  title={The Real-rootedness of Generalized Narayana Polynomials},
  author={Herman Z. Q. Chen and Arthur L. B. Yang and Philip B. Zhang},
  journal={arXiv: Combinatorics},
In this paper, we prove the real-rootedness of two classes of generalized Narayana polynomials: one arising as the $h$-polynomials of the generalized associahedron associated to the finite Weyl groups, the other arising in the study of the infinite log-concavity of the Boros-Moll polynomials. For the former, Br\"{a}nd\'{e}n has already proved that these $h$-polynomials have only real zeros. We establish certain recurrence relations for the two classes of Narayana polynomials, from which we…

Y-systems and generalized associahedra

The goals of this paper are two-fold. First, we prove, for an arbitrary finite root system D, the periodicity conjecture of Al. B. Zamolodchikov [24] that concerns Y-systems, a particular class of

Generalized cluster complexes and Coxeter combinatorics

We introduce and study a family of simplicial complexes associated to an arbitrary finite root system and a nonnegative integer parameter m. For m=1, our construction specializes to the (simplicial)

Iterated sequences and the geometry of zeros

We study the effect on the zeros of generating functions of sequences under certain non-linear transformations. Characterizations of Pólya– Schur type are given of the transformations that preserve

On a refinement of the generalized Catalan numbers for Weyl groups

Let Φ be an irreducible crystallographic root system with Weyl group W, coroot lattice Q and Coxeter number h, spanning a Euclidean space V, and let m be a positive integer. It is known that the set

2-Log-Concavity of the Boros–Moll Polynomials

Abstract The Boros–Moll polynomials Pm (a) arise in the evaluation of a quartic integral. It has been conjectured by Boros and Moll that these polynomials are infinitely log-concave. In this paper,

Three recurrences for parallelogram polyominoes

We define three polynomials sequences , for α=0, 1, or 2, in terms of various "diagonal thickness" parameters on parallelogram polyominoes. Here n denotes the semiperimeter and w marks th horizontal

Advanced applications of the holonomic systems approach

This thesis contributed to translating Takayama's algorithm into a new context, in order to apply it to an until then open problem, the proof of Ira Gessel's lattice path conjecture, and to make the underlying computations feasible the authors employed a new approach for finding creative telescoping operators.
