Jack polynomials form a basis for the ring of symmetric polynomials, generalising several other classical families of polynomials, including Schur polynomials. There is an ongoing search for direct formulas for some the coefficients obtained when certain products and translates of Jack polynomials are expanded in this basis. In this talk, I will describe these polynomials and coefficients, and discuss some of the interesting combinatorics underlying them.
