Abstract

Many combinatorial and computational problems in pure and applied mathematics as well as mathematical physics can be solved using polynomials in many variables. This proposal will expand our understanding of the poorly understood class of non-symmetric polynomials by studying their novel combinatorial structure. The outcomes will address the current difficulty of implementing non-symmetric polynomials in symbolic algebra packages by developing completely new computational algorithms. Secondly, this new understanding will be used to solve several challenging mathematical enumeration problems.
