May 23 comment How to find instances when $d(a,b) = p^2$ for $p$ a prime. @MarkBennet it appears after looking at your answer and the original problem more closely that there are no such $(a,b) \in \Bbb N$ that satisfy this for $p$ a prime. Do you know how I might find the integral points on the surface $F(a,b,n) = 0 = d(a,b) - n$ for $n \in \Bbb N$? May 23 comment How to find instances when $d(a,b) = p^2$ for $p$ a prime. @AmireBendjeddou $a, b \in \Bbb N$, sorry I should have mentioned these constraints. @ Mark Bennet: I'm sorry I think I may have misunderstood you. So your comment is that there are no pairs of the form $(1, b)$ satisfying the above equality? May 23 asked How to find instances when $d(a,b) = p^2$ for $p$ a prime.

I too noticed that the elements of $\mathfrak{sl}_2$ were acting like derivatives in terms of reduction of powers (it was clear that they would act via the typical derivation action on tensor products). I appreciate you taking the time to work this out for me in a very motivated manner. Apr 27 accepted Computing eigenvalues for $\mathrm{Sym}^2(\mathrm{Sym}^3 V))$ for $V = \Bbb C^2$
