Dual immaculate creation operators and a dendriform algebra structure on the quasisymmetric functions
The dual immaculate functions are a basis of the ring $\operatorname*{QSym}$ of quasisymmetric functions, and form one of the most natural analogues of the Schur functions. The dual immaculate function corresponding to a composition is a weighted generating function for immaculate tableaux in the same way as a Schur function is for semistandard Young tableaux; an " immaculate tableau" is defined similarly to be a semistandard Young tableau, but the shape is a composition rather than a partition, and only the first column is required to strictly increase (whereas the other columns can be arbitrary; but each row has to weakly increase). Dual immaculate functions have been introduced by Berg, Bergeron, Saliola, Serrano and Zabrocki in arXiv:1208.5191, and have since been found to possess numerous nontrivial properties. In this note, we prove a conjecture of Mike Zabrocki which provides an alternative construction for the dual immaculate functions in terms of certain "vertex operators". The proof uses a dendriform structure on the ring $\operatorname*{QSym}$; we discuss the relation of this structure to known dendriform structures on the combinatorial Hopf algebras $\operatorname*{FQSym}$ and $\operatorname*{WQSym}$.

A Lift of the Schur and Hall-Littlewood Bases to Non-commutative Symmetric Functions
We introduce a new basis of the algebra of non-commutative symmetric functions whose images under the forgetful map are Schur functions when indexed by a partition. Dually, we build a basis of the quasi-symmetric functions which expand positively in the fundamental quasi-symmetric functions. We then use the basis to construct a non-commutative lift of the Hall-Littlewood symmetric functions with similar properties to their commutative counterparts.
