The cyclic sieving phenomenon (CSP) was defined by Reiner, Stanton, and White in 2004. The ingredients are a finite set \(X\), a cyclic group \(C\) acting on \(X\), and a polynomial \(f(q)\) with nonnegative integer coefficients and satisfying \(f(1) = |X|\). The triple \((X, C, f(q))\) is said to exhibit the CSP if \(f(q)\) evaluated at certain roots of unity gives the number of elements of \(X\) fixed by powers of a generator of \(C\). We will discuss an example instance on circular Dyck paths, which were recently studied by Alexandersson and Panova. We \(q\)-enumerated them and proved that they exhibit the CSP under shifting their area sequences. This is joint work with Per Alexandersson and Svante Linusson.
