Abstract

We study the statistics area, bounce and dinv associated to polyominoes in a rectangular box m times n. We show that the bi-statistics (area, bounce) and (area, dinv) give rise to the same q, t-analogue of Narayana numbers, which was introduced by two of these authors in a recent paper. We prove the main conjectures of that same work, i.e. the symmetries in q and t, and in m and n of these polynomials, by providing a symmetric functions interpretation which relates them to the famous diagonal harmonics.
