COMMENTS

The coefficients of the Faber polynomials F(n,b(1),b(2),...,b(n)) (Bouali, p. 52) in the order of the partitions of Abramowitz and Stegun. Compare with A115131 and A210258.

These polynomials occur in discussions of the Virasoro algebra, univalent function spaces and the Schwarzian derivative, symmetric functions, and free probability theory. They are intimately related to symmetric functions, free probability, and Appell sequences through the raising operator R = x - d log(H(D))/dD for the Appell sequence inverse pair associated to the e.g.f.s H(t)e^(xt) (cf. A094587) and (1/H(t))e^(xt) with H(0)=1.

Instances of the Faber polynomials occur in discussions of modular invariants and modular functions in the papers by Asai, Kaneko, and Ninomiya, by Ono and Rolen, and by Zagier. - Tom Copeland, Aug 13 2019

The Faber polynomials, denoted by s_n(a(t)) where a(t) is a formal power series defined by a product formula, are implicitly defined by equation 13.4 on p. 62 of Hazewinkel so as to extract the power sums of the reciprocals of the zeros of a(t). This is the Newton identity expressing the power sum symmetric polynomials in terms of the elementary symmetric polynomials/functions. - Tom Copeland, Jun 06 2020

FORMULA

-log(1 + b(1) x + b(2) x^2 + ...) = Sum_{n>=1} F(n,b(1),...,b(n)) * x^n/n.

-d(1 + b(1) x + b(2) x^2 + ...)/dx / (1 + b(1) x + b(2) x^2 + ...) = Sum_{n>=1} F(n,b(1),...,b(n)) x^(n-1).

F(n,b(1),..,b(n)) = -n*b(n) - Sum_{k=1..n-1} b(n-k)*F(k,b(1),..,b(k)).

Umbrally, with B(x) = 1 + b(1) x + b(2) x^2 + ..., B(x) = exp[log(1-F.x)] and 1/B(x) = exp[-log(1-F.x)], establishing a connection to the e.g.f. of A036039 and the symmetric polynomials.

The Stirling partition polynomials of the first kind St1(n,b1,b2,...,bn;-1) = IF(n,b1,b2,...,bn) (cf. the Copeland link Lagrange a la Lah, signed A036039, and p. 184 of Airault and Bouali), i.e., the cyclic partition polynomials for the symmetric groups, and the Faber polynomials form an inverse pair for isolating the indeterminates in their definition, for example, F(3,IF(1,b1),IF(2,b1,b2)/2!,IF(3,b1,b2,b3)/3!)= b3, with bk = b(k), and IF(3,F(1,b1),F(2,b1,b2),F(3,b1,b2,b3))/3!= b3.

The polynomials specialize to F(n,t,t,...) = (1-t)^n - 1.

See Newton Identities on Wikipedia on relation between the power sum symmetric polynomials and the complete homogeneous and elementary symmetric polynomials for an expression in multinomials for the coefficients of the Faber polynomials.

(n-1)! F(n,x[1],x[2]/2!,...,x[n]/n!) = - p_n(x[1],...,x[n]), where p_n are the cumulants of A127671 expressed in terms of the moments x[n]. - Tom Copeland, Nov 17 2015

-(n-1)! F(n,B(1,x[1]),B(2,x[1],x[2])/2!,...,B(n,x[1],...,x[n])/n!) = x[n] provides an extraction of the indeterminates of the complete Bell partition polynomials B(n,x[1],...,x[n]) of A036040. Conversely, IF(n,-x[1],-x[2],-x[3]/2!,...,-x[n]/(n-1)!) = B(n,x[1],...,x[n]). - Tom Copeland, Nov 29 2015

For a square matrix M, determinant(I - x M) = exp[-Sum_{k>0} (trace(M^k) x^k / k)] = Sum_{n>0} [ P_n(-trace(M),-trace(M^2),...,-trace(M^n)) x^n/n! ] = 1 + Sum_{n>0} (d[n] x^n), where P_n(x[1],...,x[n]) are the cycle index partition polynomials of A036039 and d[n] = P_n(-trace(M),-trace(M^2),...,-trace(M^n)) / n!. Umbrally, det(I - x M)= exp[log(1 - b. x)] = exp[P.(-b_1,..,-b_n)x] = 1 / (1-d.x), where b_k = tr(M^k). Then F(n,d[1],...,d[n]) = tr[M^n]. - Tom Copeland, Dec 04 2015

Given f(x) = -log(g(x)) = -log(1 + b(1) x + b(2) x^2 + ...) = Sum_{n>=1} F(n,b(1),...,b(n)) * x^n/n, action on u_n = F(n,b(1),...,b(n)) with A133932 gives the compositional inverse finv(x) of f(x), with F(1,b(1)) not equal to zero, and f(g(finv(x))) = f(e^(-x)). Note also that exp(f(x)) = 1 / g(x) = exp[Sum_{n>=1} F(n,b(1),...,b(n)) * x^n/n] implies relations among A036040, A133314, A036039, and the Faber polynomials. - Tom Copeland, Dec 16 2015

The Dress and Siebeneicher paper gives combinatorial interpretations and various relations that the Faber polynomials must satisfy for integral values of its arguments. E.g., Eqn. (1.2) p. 2 implies [2 * F(1,-1) + F(2,-1,b2) + F(4,-1,b2,b3,b4)]  mod(4) = 0. This equation implies that [F(n,b1,b2,...,bn)-(-b1)^n] mod(n) = 0 for n prime. - Tom Copeland, Feb 01 2016

With the elementary Schur polynomials S(n,a_1,a_2,...,a_n) = Lah(n,a_1,a_2,...,a_n) / n!, where Lah(n,...) are the refined Lah polynomials of A130561, F(n,S(1,a_1),S(2,a_1,a_2),...,S(n,a_1,...,a_n)) = -n * a_n since sum_{n > 0} a_n x^n = log[sum{n >= 0} S(n,a_1,...,a_n) x^n]. Conversely, S(n,-F(1,a_1),-F(2,a_1,a_2)/2,...,-F(n,a_1,...,a_n)/n) = a_n. - Tom Copeland, Sep 07 2016

See Corollary 3.1.3 on p. 38 of Ardila and Copeland's two MathOverflow links to relate the Faber polynomials, with arguments being the signed elementary symmetric polynomials, to the logarithm of determinants, traces of powers of an adjacency matrix, and number of walks on graphs. - Tom Copeland, Jan 02 2017

The umbral inverse polynomials IF appear on p. 19 of Konopelchenko as partial differential operators. - Tom Copeland, Nov 19 2018

EXAMPLE

F(1,b1) = - b1

F(2,b1,b2) = -2 b2 + b1^2

F(3,b1,b2,b3) = -3 b3 + 3 b1 b2 - b1^3

F(4,b1,...) = -4 b4 + 4 b1 b3 + 2 b2^2  - 4 b1^2 b2 + b1^4

F(5,...) = -5 b5 + 5 b1 b4 + 5 b2 b3 - 5 b1^2 b3 - 5 b1 b2^2 + 5 b1^3 b2 - b1^5

------------------------------

IF(1,b1) = -b1

IF(2,b1,,b2) = -b2 + b1^2

IF(3,b1,b2,b3) = -2 b3 + 3 b1 b2 - b1^3

IF(4,b1,...) = -6 b4 + 8 b1 b3 + 3 b2^2  - 6 b1^2 b2 + b1^4

IF(5,...) = -24 b5 + 30 b1 b4 + 20 b2 b3 - 20 b1^2 b3 - 15 b1 b2^2 + 10 b1^3 b2 - b1^5

------------------------------

For 1/(1+x)^2 = 1- 2x + 3x^2 - 4x^3 + 5x^4 - ..., F(n,-2,3,-4,...) = (-1)^(n+1) 2.

------------------------------

F(n,x,2x,...,nx), F(n,-x,2x,-3x,...,(-1)^n n*x), and F(n,(2-x),1,0,0,...) are related to the Chebyshev polynomials through A127677 and A111125. See also A110162, A156308, A208513, A217476, and A220668.
