We extend earlier work on fully symmetric polynomials for three-boson wave functions to arbitrarily many bosons and apply these to a light-front analysis of the low-mass eigenstates of ϕ4theory in 1+1 dimensions. The basis-function approach allows the resolution in each Fock sector to be independently optimized, which can be more efficient than the preset discrete Fock states in DLCQ. We obtain an estimate of the critical coupling for symmetry breaking in the positive mass-squared case.
