Bijections between Łukasiewicz walks and generalized tandem walks


In this article, we study the enumeration by length of several walk models on the square lattice. We obtain bijections between walks in the upper half-plane returning to the x-axis and walks in the quarter plane. A recent work by Bostan, Chyzak, and Mahboubi has given a bijection for models using small north, west, and southeast steps. We adapt and generalize it to a bijection between half-plane walks using those three steps in two colours and a quarter-plane model over the symmetrized step set consisting of north, northwest , west, south, southeast , and east. We then generalize our bijections to certain models with large steps: for given $p ≥ 1$, a bijection is given between the half-plane and quarter-plane models obtained by keeping the small southeast step and replacing the two steps north and west of length 1 by the $p + 1$ steps of length p in directions between north and west. This model is close to, but distinct from, the model of generalized tandem walks studied by Bousquet-Mélou, Fusy, and Raschel.
