Finite Coxeter Groups and Generalized Elnitsky Tilings

  title={Finite Coxeter Groups and Generalized Elnitsky Tilings},
  author={Robert Nicolaides and Peter Rowley},
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. 



Subtilings of Elnitsky Tilings for Finite Irreducible Coxeter Groups

Two new Elnitsky tilings for Coxeter groups of type B are displayed as certain subtilings. Additionally, a new tiling for the non-crystallographic Coxeter group of type H3 is obtained, described as a

Rhombic Tilings of Polygons and Classes of Reduced Words in Coxeter Groups

A bijection is established between the resulting equivalence classes and rhombic tilings of a certain 2n-gon determined by the permutation of the Coxeter groups, namely those of typesBandD.

Rhombic tilings and Bott-Samelson varieties

S.~Elnitsky (1997) gave an elegant bijection between rhombic tilings of $2n$-gons and commutation classes of reduced words in the symmetric group on $n$ letters. P.~Magyar (1998) found an important

Fully commutative elements in finite and affine Coxeter groups

An element of a Coxeter group $$W$$W is fully commutative if any two of its reduced decompositions are related by a series of transpositions of adjacent commuting generators. These elements were

On the Fully Commutative Elements of Coxeter Groups

Let W be a Coxeter group. We define an element w ∈ W to be fully commutative if any reduced expression for w can be obtained from any other by means of braid relations that only involve commuting

Rhombus Tilings of an Even-Sided Polygon and Quadrangulations on the Projective Plane

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.

On the number of commutation classes of the longest element in the symmetric group

Using the standard Coxeter presentation for the symmetric group $S_n$, two reduced expressions for the same group element are said to be commutation equivalent if we can obtain one expression from
