Chebyshev type lattice path weight polynomials by a constant term method

Osborn, Judy-Anne; Brak, R


We prove a constant term theorem which is useful for finding weight polynomials for Ballot/Motzkin paths in a strip with a fixed number of arbitrary 'decorated' weights as well as an arbitrary 'background' weight. Our CT theorem, like Viennot's lattice path theorem from which it is derived primarily by a change of variable lemma, is expressed in terms of orthogonal polynomials which in our applications of interest often turn out to be non-classical. Hence, we also present an efficient method...[Show more]
