Rectangular Symmetries for Coefficients of Symmetric Functions

Emmanuel Briand, Rosa Orellana, Mercedes Rosas


We show that some of the main structural constants for symmetric functions (Littlewood-Richardson coefficients, Kronecker coefficients, plethysm coefficients, and the Kostka–Foulkes polynomials) share symmetries related to the operations of taking complements with respect to rectangles and adding rectangles.
