On Some Analogues of Descent Numbers and Major Index for the Hyperoctahedral Group
We give a new description of the flag major index, introduced by Adin and Roichman,
by using a major index defined by Reiner. This allows us to
establish a connection between an identity of Reiner and some more recent results due to Chow and Gessel.
Furthermore we generalize the main identity of Chow and Gessel by computing the four-variate
generating series of descents, major index, length, and number of negative entries over Coxeter groups of type B and D.
