A Survey of Stack-Sorting Disciplines

Abstract


We review the various ways that stacks, their variations and their combinations, have been used as sorting devices. In particular, we show that they have been a key motivator for the study of permutation patterns. We also show that they have connections to other areas in combinatorics such as Young tableau, planar graph theory, and simplicial complexes.
