    • Combinatorial Laguerre Series 

      Taylor, Jair Patrick (2014-02-24)
      We develop a method for counting words subject to various restrictions by finding a combinatorial interpretation for a product of weighted sums of Laguerre polynomials. We describe how such a series can be computed by ...
    • Formal group laws and hypergraph colorings 

      Taylor, Jair Patrick
      This thesis demonstrates a connection between formal group laws and chromatic symmetric functions of hypergraphs, two seemingly unrelated topics in the theory of symmetric functions. A formal group law is a symmetric ...
