# Finite Coxeter Groups and Generalized Elnitsky Tilings

@inproceedings{Nicolaides2021FiniteCG, title={Finite Coxeter Groups and Generalized Elnitsky Tilings}, author={Robert Nicolaides and Peter Rowley}, year={2021} }

In [5], Elnitsky constructed three elegant bijections between classes of reduced words for Type A, B and D families of Coxeter groups and certain tilings of polygons. This paper oﬀers a particular generalization of this concept to all ﬁnite Coxeter Groups in terms of embeddings into the Symmetric Group.

It is proved that the rhombus tilings of a regular 2 k -gon bijectively correspond to the pairs of a k -minimal quadrangulations on the projective plane and its specified noncontractible k -cycle.
