In a first part, we are concerned with the relationships between polynomials in the two generators of the algebra of Heisenberg—Weyl, its Bargmann—Fock representation with differential operators and the associated one-parameter group.

Upon this basis, the paper is then devoted to the groups of Riordan matrices associated to the related transformations of matrices (i.e., substitutions with prefunctions). Thereby, various properties are studied arising in Riordan arrays, in the Riordan group and, more specifically, in the "striped" Riordan subgroups; further, a striped quasigroup and a semigroup are also examined. A few  applications to combinatorial structures are also briefly addressed in the Appendix.
