This chapter introduces the Tokuyama's Theorem, first by writing the Weyl character formula and restating Schur polynomials, the values of the Whittaker function multiplied by the normalization constant. The λ-parts of Whittaker coefficients of Eisenstein series can be profitably regarded as a deformation of the numerator in the Weyl character formula. This leads to deformations of the Weyl character formula. Tokuyama gave such a deformation. It is an expression of ssubscript Greek small letter lamda(z) as a ratio of a numerator to a denominator. The denominator is a deformation of the Weyl denominator, and the numerator is a sum over Gelfand-Tsetlin patterns with top row λ + ρ.Less

This chapter reinterprets Statements A and B in a different context, and yet again directly proves that the reinterpreted Statement B implies the reinterpreted Statement A in Theorem 19.10. The p-parts of Weyl group multiple Dirichlet series, with their deformed Weyl denominators, may be expressed as partition functions of exactly solved models in statistical mechanics. The transition to ice-type models represents a subtle shift in emphasis from the crystal basis representation, and suggests the introduction of a new tool, the Yang-Baxter equation. This tool was developed to prove the commutativity of the row transfer matrix for the six-vertex and similar models. This is significant because Statement B can be formulated in terms of the commutativity of two row transfer matrices. This chapter presents an alternate proof of Statement B using the Yang-Baxter equation.Less
