On the Algebraic Combinatorics of Injections

Abstract. We consider the algebraic combinatorics of the set of injections from a k-element set to an n-element set. In particular, we give a new combinatorial formula for the spherical functions of the Gelfand pair (Sk x Sn, diag(Sk) x Sn-k). We use this combinatorial formula to give new LP bounds on the size of codes over injections.
