Let Γ denote a bipartite distance-regular graph with vertex set X and diameter D≥3. Fix x∈X and let L (resp., R) denote the corresponding lowering (resp., raising) matrix. We show that each Q-polynomial structure for Γ yields a certain linear dependency among RL2, LRL, L2R, L. Define a partial order ≤ on X as follows. For y,z∈X let y≤z whenever ∂(x,y)+∂(y,z)=∂(x,z), where ∂ denotes path-length distance. We determine whether the above linear dependency gives this poset a uniform or strongly…

Let Γ denote the folded (2D + 1)-cube with vertex set X and diameter D ≥ 3. Fix x ∈ X. We first define a partial order ≤ on X as follows. For y, z ∈ X let y ≤ z whenever ∂(x, y) + ∂(y, z) = ∂(x, z).
