title = {{The Complete Generating Function for Gessel Walks is Algebraic}},
language = {english},
abstract = { Gessel walks are lattice walks in the quarter plane $\set N^2$ which start at the origin~$(0,0)\in\set N^2$ and consist only of steps chosen from the set $\{\leftarrow,\penalty0\swarrow,\penalty0\nearrow,\penalty0\rightarrow\}$. We prove that if $g(n;i,j)$ denotes the number of Gessel walks of length~$n$ which end at the point~$(i,j)\in\set N^2$, then the trivariate generating series $\displaystyle\smash{ G(t;x,y)=\sum_{n,i,j\geq 0} g(n;i,j)x^i y^j t^n }$ is an algebraic function. },
