A combinatorial formula for nonsymmetric Macdonald polynomials. (English) Zbl 1246.05162

We give a combinatorial formula for the nonsymmetric Macdonald polynomials \(E_{\mu}(x; q, t)\). The formula generalizes our previous combinatorial interpretation of the integral form symmetric Macdonald polynomials \(J_{\mu}(x; q, t)\). We prove the new formula by verifying that it satisfies a recurrence, due to F. Knop and S. Sahi [Invent. Math. 128, No. 1, 9–22 (1997; Zbl 0870.05076)], that characterizes the nonsymmetric Macdonald polynomials.
