Title:Enumeration Schemes and Their Extensions and Refinements
Seminar:Combinatorics/Partitions Seminar
Speaker:Andrew Baxter, Rutgers
The notion of an enumeration scheme, as introduced by Zeilberger (1998) and improved by Vatter (2008), encodes a recurrence which can quickly compute the number of permutations avoiding a given set of patterns. The computation of these schemes was automated by Vatter in a Maple package dubbed WILFPLUS, which Zeilberger further improved in his Maple package VATTER. Pudwell (2008) has extended enumeration schemes to the related contexts of pattern-avoiding words and barred-patterns. We will discuss these developments, as well as a refinement which counts according to the inversion numbers of the permutations.
