Let Φ denote Foata’s second fundamental transformation on permutations. For a permutation σ in the symmetric group Sn, let Λ̃σ = {π ∈ Sn : π 6w σ} be the principal order ideal generated by σ in the weak order 6w. Björner and Wachs have shown that Λ̃σ is invariant under Φ if and only if σ is a 132-avoiding permutation. In this paper, we consider the(More)
