Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

An unlabeled poset is said to be -free if it does not contain an induced subposet that is isomorphic to , the union of two disjoint 2-element chains. Let pn denote the number of -free posets of size n. In a recent paper, Bousquet-Mélou et al. [1] found, using the so called ascent sequences, the generating function for the number of -free posets of size n: . We extend this result in two ways. First, we find the generating function for -free posets when four statistics are taken into account, one of which is the number of minimal elements in a poset. Second, we show that if pn,k equals the number of -free posets of size n with k minimal elements, then . The second result cannot be derived from the first one by a substitution. Our enumeration results are extended to certain restricted permutations and to regular linearized chord diagrams through bijections in [1] and [2]. Finally, we define a subset of ascent sequences counted by the Catalan numbers and we discuss its relations with - and -free posets.
