## Dirac-Appell Sequences

The Pincherle derivative  is implicitly used in Eqn. 2.19 page 13 of “Mastering the master field” by Gopakumar and Gross. The raising and creation operators in the paper are analogous to those for a Laplace-dual Appell sequence, or Dirac-Appell sequence, … Continue reading

## The Pincherle Derivative and the Appell Raising Operator

The raising and lowering operators and for a sequence of functions , with and , defined by and have the commutator relation with respect to action on the space spanned by this sequence of functions. If for any particular natural number , … Continue reading

## The Creation / Raising Operators for Appell Sequences

The Creation / Raising Operators for Appell Sequences is a pdf presenting reps of the raising operator  and its exponentiation  for normal and logarithmic Appell sequences of polynomials as differential and integral operators. The Riemann zeta and digamma, or Psi, function are connected to fractional … Continue reading

## The Kervaire-Milnor Formula

The K-M formula and its ingredients are presented in 1) Bernoulli numbers and the unity of mathematics by Barry Mazur, p.14, Secs. 4, 5, and 6 2) Differential topology forty-six years later by Milnor 3) Homotopy group of spheres Wikipedia … Continue reading

## Fractional Calculus, Gamma Classes, the Riemann Zeta Function, and an Appell Pair of Sequences

The background info and comments for the MSE question Lie group heuristics for a raising operator for and the MO question Riemann zeta function at positive integers and an Appell sequence of poylnomials introduce an Appell sequence of polynomials containing … Continue reading

## The Riemann and Hurwitz zeta functions and the Mellin transform interpolation of the Bernoulli polynomials

This entry (expanding on the Bernoulli Appells entry) illustrates interpolation with the Mellin transform of the Bernoulli polynomials and their umbral inverses, the reciprocal polynomials, giving essentially the Hurwitz zeta function and the finite difference of , both of which … Continue reading

## Appell polynomials, cumulants, noncrossing partitions, Dyck lattice paths, and inversion

The raising op for any Appell sequence is determined by the derivative of the log of the e.g.f. of the basic number sequence, connecting the op to the combinatorics of the cumulant expansion OEIS-127671 of the moment generating function and … Continue reading
