A Unified View of Determinantal Expansions for Jack Polynomials

Leigh Roberts

Abstract


Recently Lapointe et. al. [3] have expressed Jack Polynomials as determinants in monomial symmetric functions $m_\lambda$. We express these polynomials as determinants in elementary symmetric functions $e_\lambda$, showing a fundamental symmetry between these two expansions. Moreover, both expansions are obtained indifferently by applying the Calogero-Sutherland operator in physics or quasi Laplace Beltrami operators arising from differential geometry and statistics. Examples are given, and comments on the sparseness of the determinants so obtained conclude the paper.
