%TPolynomials from Combinatorial -theory
%XAbstract We introduce two new bases of the ring of polynomials and study their relations to known bases. The first basis is the quasi-Lascoux basis, which is simultaneously both a $K$ -theoretic deformation of the quasi-key basis and also a lift of the $K$ -analogue of the quasi-Schur basis from quasi-symmetric polynomials to general polynomials. We give positive expansions of this quasi-Lascoux basis into the glide and Lascoux atom bases, as well as a positive expansion of the Lascoux basis into the quasi-Lascoux basis. As a special case, these expansions give the first proof that the $K$ -analogues of quasi-Schur polynomials expand positively in multifundamental quasi-symmetric polynomials of T. Lam and P. Pylyavskyy. The second new basis is the kaon basis, a $K$ -theoretic deformation of the fundamental particle basis. We give positive expansions of the glide and Lascoux atom bases into this kaon basis. Throughout, we explore how the relationships among these $K$ -analogues mirror the relationships among their cohomological counterparts. We make several “alternating sum” conjectures that are suggestive of Euler characteristic calculations.
