Multinomial convolution polynomials. (English) Zbl 0860.05005
The convolution polynomials \(F_{n_1,n_2,\dots,n_s}(x)\) are defined as the coefficients of \(z^{n_1}_1z_2^{n_2}\cdots z^{n_s}_s\) in
\(F(z_1,\dots,z_s)^x\), where \(F(z_1,\dots,z_s)\) is any formal power series with \(F(0,\dots,0)=1\). The author studies multidimensional extensions of results of D. Knuth [Convolution polynomials, The Mathematical Journal 2, 67-78 (1992)]. Similar results have been obtained by J. Hofbauer [Beiträge zu Rota’s Theorie der Folgen von Binomialtyp, Sitzungsber., Abt. II, Österr. Akad. Wiss., Math.-Naturwiss. Kl. 187, 437-489 (1978; Zbl 0437.05004)].
