A multivariate “inv” hook formula for forests
Björner and Wachs provided two q-generalizations of Knuth’s hook formula counting linear extensions of forests: one involving the major index statistic, and one involving the inversion number statistic. We prove a multivariate generalization of their inversion number result, motivated by specializations related to the modular invariant theory of finite general linear groups.
