Nothing in Moderation, Everything in Excess: A New Weighted Statistic on Permutations
The major index is a well-known statistic on permutations which is computed by summing the positions of descents in a permutation. Instead of considering descents, this paper investigates what happens when excedances are weighted by position in a permutation. Several theorems are presented concerning various symmetries of the resulting distribution.
