Sign Reversing Involutions and Lattice Paths Because I was covering the material a little quickly on Friday I decided to write up some notes on the lattice paths Let ul 01 771 1171 7 k 1 712 10 and 772 k 171 7 The problem is to count the number of ordered pairs P1 P2 of lattice paths using only the steps E and N for which P1 goes from 711 to 771 P2 goes from 712 to 772 and P1 and P2 do not intersect Denote this set of paths by F Draw pictures for yourself We begin by considering a larger set of ordered pairs of lattice paths S P1P2 P1 goes from 711 to 7 and P2 goes from 712 to 77 for 139 77 j We sign the set S by SJr P1P2 P1u1 7 771 and P2 712 7 772 and S P1P2 P1 711 7 772 and P2 712 7 771 So EP1P2 P1P2 6 8 and EP1P2 71P1P2E ST Now de ne an involution 7139 on S as follows If P1 P2 do not intersect then set 7TP1 P2 P1 P2 a xed point If P1 P2 intersect then let q be the rst lattice point of intersection as you follow the paths Set 7TP1 P2 Pf PZ where P is obtained by following P1 from 711 to q and then following P2 from q to the end of P2 and P2 is obtained by following P2 from 712 to q and then following P1 from q to the end of P1 Draw pictures We now make the following observations 1 FCSf P All pairs of paths in SF must intersect in fact paths in S must cross so F is the set of xed points of 7139 C40 The number of paths P ul 7 771 is the same as the number of paths from 0 0 to 1171 7 k namely 4 Similarly the number of paths P 712 7 772 is the same as the number of paths from 00 to 1171 7 k namely U The number of paths P ul 7 772 is the same as the number of paths from 0 0 to k 7 171 7 k 7 1 namely 03 The number of paths P 712 7 771 is the same as the number of paths from 0 0 to k 7171 7 k 1 namely 5 Thus the number of pairs of paths in SJr 00 Similarly the number of pairs of paths in S kn 1 Therefore FZea 165 m SH 7 m 7 1 k f 1 2 1 1 2 As a consequence7 227 2 0 and so S 22 and thus the sequence yields 01 Z k 07 771 is con rmed to be log concave
