Analytic aspects of the shuffle product

22011.MishnaMarni.Paper.1317.pdf (0.2 MB)


There exist very lucid explanations of the combinatorial origins of
rational and algebraic functions, in particular with respect to
regular and context free languages. In the search to understand
how to extend these natural correspondences, we find that the
shuffle product models many key aspects of D-finite generating
functions, a class which contains algebraic. We consider several
different takes on the shuffle product, shuffle closure, and
shuffle grammars, and give explicit generating function
consequences. In the process, we define a grammar class that
models D-finite generating functions.
