# On Algebraic Basis of the Algebra of Symmetric Polynomials on

**Academic Editor:**Alberto Fiorenza

#### Abstract

We consider polynomials on spaces of -summing sequences of -dimensional complex vectors, which are symmetric with respect to permutations of elements of the sequences, and describe algebraic bases of algebras of continuous symmetric polynomials on

#### 1. Introduction

Algebras of polynomials and analytic functions on a Banach space which are invariant (symmetric) with respect to a group of linear operators acting on were studied by a number of authors [1–10] (see also a survey [11]). If has a symmetric structure, then it is natural to consider the case when is a group of operators which preserve this structure. In particular, if is a rearrangement-invariant sequence space, then is used to be the group of permutations of positive integers. In [8] Nemirovskii and Semenov described algebraic bases of algebras of continuous symmetric polynomials on real spaces , where Their results were generalized by González et al. [7] to real separable rearrangement-invariant sequence spaces.

Algebraic basis plays a crucial role in the problem of description of spectra of algebras generated by polynomials [1–4]. For example, each complex homomorphism on the algebra of symmetric polynomials on is completely defined by its values on the basis elements.

Note that an algebra of symmetric functions essentially depends on a representation of a given group on In particular, in [12–14] the group of permutations of positive integers was considered which acts on the complex space permutating “blocks” of coordinates. Polynomials which are invariant with respect to the action are called block-symmetric. It is natural to consider such polynomials as symmetric polynomials on

In this work we get an explicit description of algebraic bases of algebras of symmetric polynomials on , where
