S66 PROBLEMS #5
Spring 2003

## Let us define the nth Catalan number Cn by

 
1 2n
Cn = , n 0. (5)
n+1 n
Thus (C0 , C1 , . . .) = (1, 1, 2, 5, 14, 42, 132, 429, . . .). There are a huge number
of combinatorial interpretations of these numbers; 66 appear in Exercise 6.19
of R. Stanley, Enumerative Combinatorics, vol. 2. This exercise (as well as
some related ones) is available at www-math.mit.edu/rstan/ec, and an ad-
dendum with many more interpretations may be found at the same website.
We give here a subset of these interpretations that are the most fundamental
or most interesting. Problem 143 is perhaps the easiest one to show bijec-
tively is counted by (5). All your other proofs should be bijections with
previously shown Catalan sets. Each interpretation is illustrated by the
case n = 3, which hopefully will make any undefined terms clear. Needless
to say, you should not hand in a problem whose solution you have obtained
from an outside source (except reasonable collaboration with other students
in the course).

Note. A real matrix A is positive definite if it is symmetric and every
eigenvalue is positive; equivalently, A is symmetric and every leading
principal minor is positive. A leading principal minor is the determi-
nant of a square submatrix that fits into the upper left-hand corner of
A.

## This concludes the list of objects counted by Catalan numbers. A few

more problems related to Catalan numbers are the following.

## 171. (*) We have

n
X
C2k C2(nk) = 4n Cn .
k=0

## 172. (*) An intriguing variation of Problem 170 above is the following. A

bijective proof would be of great interest. Let g(n) denote the number
of n n N-matrices M = (mij ) where mij = 0 if i > j + 1, with row
and column sum vector 1, 3, 6, . . . , n+1
2
. For instance, when n = 2
there are the two matrices
   
1 0 0 1
.
0 3 1 2
Then g(n) = C1 C2 Cn .
173. [2] (compare with Problem 168) Let f (n) be the number of ways to
write the vector
  
n+1
1, 2, 3, . . . , n, Zn+1
2
as a sum of vectors ei ej , 1 i < j n + 1, without regard to
order, where ek is the kth unit coordinate vector in Zn+1 . For in-
stance, when n = 2 there are the two ways (1, 2, 3) = (1, 0, 1) +
2(0, 1, 1) = (1, 1, 0) + 3(0, 1, 1). Assuming Problem 172, show
that f (n) = C1 C2 Cn .

39
174. [2.5] The Narayana numbers N (n, k) are defined by
  
1 n n
N (n, k) = .
n k k1

## Let Xnk be the set of all sequences w = w1 w2 w2n of n 1s and n

1s with all partial sums nonnegative, such that

n
X
N (n, k) = Cn .
k=1

## One therefore says that the Narayana numbers are a refinement of

the Catalan numbers. There are many other interesting refinements of
Catalan numbers, but we wont consider them here.
