Abstract

Dedicated to Peter M. Neumann on the occasion of his seventieth birthday We develop cycle index generating functions for orthogonal groups in even characteristic and give some enumerative applications. A key step is the determination of the values of the complex linear-Weil characters of the finite symplectic group, and their induction to the general linear group, at unipotent elements. We also define and study several natural probability measures on integer partitions.
