Title: (q, t)-Catalan combinatorics
Abstract: A q-analog of a counting function is a polynomial in q that reduces to the function when evaluated at q=1. Such polynomials can keep track of extra information about the objects you are counting. We will discuss q- and q,t-analogs to the Catalan numbers, connections between them, and the statistics they encode.
