## 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

## The Hirzebruch criterion for the Todd class

The Hirzebruch criterion for the Todd class is given in “The signature theorem: reminiscences and recreations” by Hirzebruch. The formal power series that defines the Todd class must satisfy . The e.g.f. for the Bernoulli numbers uniquely satisfies this criterion. … Continue reading
