# Decomposition results for Gram matrix determinants

@article{Banica2010DecompositionRF, title={Decomposition results for Gram matrix determinants}, author={Teodor Banica and Stephen J. Curran}, journal={Journal of Mathematical Physics}, year={2010}, volume={51}, pages={113503} }

We study the Gram matrix determinants for the groups Sn, On, Bn, Hn, for their free versions Sn+,On+,Bn+,Hn+, and for the half-liberated versions On*,Hn*. We first collect all the known computations of such determinants, along with complete and simplified proofs, and with generalizations where needed. We conjecture that all these determinants decompose as D = ∏πφ(π), with product over all associated partitions.
