## Unimodality of Eulerian quasisymmetric functions

**
Anthony Henderson and Michelle Wachs**
**Abstract:**
We prove two conjectures of Shareshian and Wachs about Eulerian quasisymmetric functions and
polynomials. The first states that the cycle type Eulerian quasisymmetric function Q_{\lambda,j}
is Schur-positive, and moreover that the sequence Q_{\lambda,j} as j varies is Schur-unimodal.
The second conjecture, which we prove using the first, states that the cycle type (q,p)-Eulerian
polynomial
A_\lambda^{\maj,\des,\exc}(q,p,q^{-1}t) is t-unimodal.
