Fonctions symétriques et séries hypergéométriques basiques multivariées

Abstract. Multivariate basic hypergeometric series occur in the study of certain statistics on the symmetric group. New identities on those functions as well as their combinatorial interpretations are here obtained by means of a classical calculation on the skew Schur functions.

This article that further appeared in Bull. Soc. Math. France, vol. 13, 1985, p. 3-22, was the first mathematical paper ever published in France in a traditional journal that had been TeX-typeset by their authors. (Read the footnote on the first page.)
