Example text

W h i l e this result is naturally suggested by Schensted's theorem, it is still somewhat surprising, since we have no concrete interpretation of the individual terms and λ^* if i > 1. T h e motivation for the present paper comes from a more general class of problems involving partially ordered sets. I n [ 3 ] , Greene and Kleitman considered subsets of a partially ordered set Ρ which contain no chains of length k -f- 1 (or equivalently, subsets obtained by taking the union of k antichains). A subset with this property is called a k-family (or an antichain if k = 1).

N o w / = 1) I f d = 0 go to D*8. Otherwise continue. D*6. y(r+l)(r+l) D*7. i+-r,j<-r D*8. ( N o w d = 1) Increase k by 1, set r to some value such that = °°- I f yrr > zk reduce r by 1 and repeat this step. Otherwise set and g o to D*2. Set χ +- zk+1 and terminate (now χ Φ oo). The parenthesized statements again show that at each step the tableau remains an ST. 3) where at most one o f the zk is a diagonal element. 2) written backwards as can be verified by applying D E L E T E *(1, 4, 1) to the example above.
