nLab Jack polynomial

Jack polynomials (or Jack symmetric functions) form a class of symmetric functions J λ αJ_\lambda^\alpha labelled by a partition λ\lambda and a parameter α\alpha; by a result of I. G. Macdonald, they form a family of orthogonal polynomials. Jack polynomials can be defined as eigenfunctions of certain Laplace/Beltrami type operator coming in the theory of Calogero integrable systems and in random matrix theory. If α=1\alpha = 1 the Jack polynomials become Schur polynomials.
