A generalization of Eulerian numbers via rook placements

Esther Banaian, Steve Butler, Christopher Cox, Jeffrey Davis, Jacob Landgraf and Scarlitte Ponce

Vol. 10 (2017), No. 4, 691–705

We consider a generalization of Eulerian numbers which count the number of placements of cn rooks on an n × n chessboard where there are exactly c rooks in each row and each column, and exactly k rooks below the main diagonal. The standard Eulerian numbers correspond to the case c = 1. We show that for any c the resulting numbers are symmetric and give generating functions of these numbers for small values of k.
