Consider a lattice of n sites arranged around a ring, with the $n$ sites occupied by particles of weights $\{1,2,\ldots ,n\}$; the possible arrangements of particles in sites thus correspond to the $n!$ permutations in $S_n$. The inhomogeneous totally asymmetric simple exclusion process (or TASEP) is a Markov chain on $S_n$, in which two adjacent particles of weights $i<j$ swap places at rate $x_i  y_{n+1j}$ if the particle of weight $j$ is to the right of the particle of weight $i$. (Otherwise, nothing happens.) When $y_i=0$ for all $i$, the stationary distribution was conjecturally linked to Schubert polynomials [18], and explicit formulas for steady state probabilities were subsequently given in terms of multiline queues [4, 5]. In the case of general $y_i$, Cantini [7] showed that $n$ of the $n!$ states have probabilities proportional to double Schubert polynomials. In this paper, we introduce the class of evilavoiding permutations, which are the permutations avoiding the patterns $2413, 4132, 4213,$ and $3214$. We show that there are $\frac {(2+\sqrt {2})^{n1}+(2\sqrt {2})^{n1}}{2}$ evilavoiding permutations in $S_n$, and for each evilavoiding permutation $w$, we give an explicit formula for the steady state probability $\psi _w$ as a product of double Schubert polynomials. (Conjecturally, all other probabilities are proportional to a positive sum of at least two Schubert polynomials.) When $y_i=0$ for all $i$, we give multiline queue formulas for the $\textbf {z}$deformed steady state probabilities and use this to prove the monomial factor conjecture from [18]. Finally, we show that the Schubert polynomials arising in our formulas are flagged Schur functions, and we give a bijection in this case between multiline queues and semistandard Young tableaux.

Evilavoiding permutations, introduced by Kim and Williams in 2022, arise in the study of the inhomogeneous totally asymmetric simple exclusion process. Rectangular permutations, introduced by Chirivì, Fang, and Fourier in 2021, arise in the study of Schubert varieties and Demazure modules. Taking a suggestion of Kim and Williams, we supply an explicit bijection between evilavoiding and rectangular permutations in $S_n$ that preserves the number of recoils. We encode these classes of permutations as regular languages and construct a lengthpreserving bijection between words in these regular languages. We extend the bijection to another Wilfequivalent class of permutations, namely the $1$almostincreasing permutations, and exhibit a bijection between rectangular permutations and walks of length $2n2$ in a path of seven vertices starting and ending at the middle vertex.

Abstract 
We study relationships between permutation statistics and patternfunctions, counting the number of times particular patterns occur in a permutation. This allows us to write several familiar statistics as linear combinations of pattern counts, both in terms of a permutation and in terms of its image under the fundamental bijection. We use these enumerations to resolve the question of characterizing socalled "shallow" permutations, whose depth (equivalently, disarray/displacement) is minimal with respect to length and reflection length. We present this characterization in several ways, including vincular patterns, mesh patterns, and a new object that we call "arrow patterns." Furthermore, we specialize to characterizing and enumerating shallow involutions and shallow cycles, encountering the Motzkin and large Schröder numbers, respectively.more » « less

In this paper, we study corners in tree‐like and permutation tableaux. Tree‐like tableaux are in bijection with other combinatorial structures, including permutation tableaux, and have a connection to the partially asymmetric simple exclusion process (PASEP), an important model of an interacting particles system. In particular, in the context of tree‐like tableaux, a corner corresponds to a node occupied by a particle that could jump to the right while inner corners indicate a particle with an empty node to its left. Thus, the total number of corners represents the number of nodes at which PASEP can move, that is, the total current activity of the system. As the number of inner corners and regular corners is connected, we limit our discussion to just regular corners and show that asymptotically, the number of corners in a tableau of length
n is normally distributed. Furthermore, since the number of corners in tree‐like tableaux is closely related to the number of corners in permutation tableaux, we will discuss the corners in the context of the latter tableaux. Finally, using analogous techniques, we prove a central limit theorem for the number of corners in symmetric tree‐like tableaux and type‐B permutation tableaux. 
Pipe dreams and bumpless pipe dreams for vexillary permutations are each known to be in bijection with certain semistandard tableaux via maps due to Lenart and Weigandt, respectively. Recently, Gao and Huang have defined a bijection between the former two sets. In this note we show for vexillary permutations that the GaoHuang bijection preserves the associated tableaux, giving a new proof of Lenart's result. Our methods extend to give a recording tableau for any bumpless pipe dream.more » « less

Abstract We characterize totally symmetric selfcomplementary plane partitions (TSSCPP) as bounded compatible sequences satisfying a Yamanouchilike condition. As such, they are in bijection with certain pipe dreams. Using this characterization and the recent bijection of Gao–Huang between reduced pipe dreams and reduced bumpless pipe dreams, we give a bijection between alternating sign matrices and TSSCPP in the reduced, 1432avoiding case. We also give a different bijection in the 1432 and 2143avoiding case that preserves natural poset structures on the associated pipe dreams and bumpless pipe dreams.
