An involution principle-free bijective proof of Stanley's hook-content formula

(22 pages)

Abstract. A bijective proof for Stanley's hook-content formula for the generating function for column-strict reverse plane partitions of a given shape is given that does not involve the involution principle of Garsia and Milne. It is based on the Hillman-Grassl algorithm and Schützenberger's jeu de taquin.
