G-parking functions and tree inversions
- 115 Downloads
A depth-first search version of Dhar’s burning algorithm is used to give a bijection between the parking functions of a graph and labeled spanning trees, relating the degree of the parking function with the number of inversions of the spanning tree. Specializing to the complete graph solves a problem posed by R. Stanley.
