On Combinatorial Problems of Generalized Parking Functions

Kimberly Hadaway
PhD Student

Iowa State University

In this talk, we study combinatorial problems related to generalized parking functions. Our work is motivated by two different research questions posed to us by Dr. Ken Fan and Dr. Shanise Walker. First, we reframe Dr. Fan’s probabilistic question in terms of defective parking functions, which enumerate the number of cars unable to park in the classical parking function problem, thereby providing a partial answer to his question. Second, we answer Dr. Walker’s question establishing a bijection between unit interval parking functions and the Fubini rankings, which get their name as they are enumerated by the Fubini numbers.
