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 Refined Lives of the F- and H-Vectors of Associahedra

The compositional inversions noted in the Oct. 9-th entry “Flipping Functions with Permutohedra” have counterparts with respect to the associahedra, or Stasheff polytopes. The h-polynomials of the simplicial complexes dual to the associahedra (see the Narayana number triangle OEIS-A001263) can … Continue reading
