Generating Function

  1. Dec 6, 2012 #1
    I am suppose to use the generating function for e[itex]_{m}[/itex](x[itex]_{1}[/itex] . . . . x[itex]_{n}[/itex]) to solve a problem. I have tried looking for it but I can not seem to find any information on it. Does anyone know what it is?

    e[itex]_{m}[/itex] is the elementary symmetric functions
