JackPolynomials.jl documentation

Schur polynomials have applications in combinatorics and zonal polynomials have applications in multivariate statistics. They are particular cases of Jack polynomials. This package allows to evaluate these polynomials. It can also compute their symbolic form:

julia> jack = JackPolynomial(2, [3 ; 1], 2.5)
24.5x₁³x₂ + 14.0x₁²x₂² + 24.5x₁x₂³

julia> jack(1,2)
301.0

Such a polynomial is associated to a partition of an integer (the lambda argument in the Julia functions). It must be given as a decreasing vector of nonnegative integers (tail-zeros are allowed but they are ignored: the partion [3; 2; 0] is the same as [3; 2]).
