Foulkes characters for complex reflection groups

  title={Foulkes characters for complex reflection groups},
  author={Alexander R. Miller},
Foulkes discovered a marvelous set of characters for the symmetric group by summing Specht modules of certain ribbon shapes according to height. These characters have many remarkable properties and have been the subject of many investigations, including a recent one [2] by Diaconis and Fulman, which established some new formulas, a conjecture of Isaacs, and a connection with Eulerian idempotents. We widen our consideration to complex reflection groups and find ourselves equipped from the start…

The Eulerian idempotents, first introduced for the symmetric group and later extended to all reflection groups, generate a family of representations called the Eulerian representations that decompose
Some characters that depend only on length
The author recently introduced Foulkes characters for a wide variety of reflection groups, and the hyperoctahedral ones have attracted some special attention. Diaconis and Fulman connected them to
On Foulkes characters
Abstract. Orthogonality relations for Foulkes characters of full monomial groups are presented, along with three solutions to the problem of decomposing products of these characters, and new

K-theoretic Schubert calculus and applications
A central result in algebraic combinatorics is the Littlewood-Richardson rule that governs products in the cohomology of Grassmannians. A major theme of the modern Schubert calculus is to extend this
SB-Labelings, Distributivity, and Bruhat Order on Sortable Elements
In this article, we investigate the set of γ-sortable elements, associated with a Coxeter group W and a Coxeter element γ ∈ W, under Bruhat order, and we denote this poset by Bγ. We prove that this
Walls in Milnor fiber complexes
For a real reflection group the reflecting hyperplanes cut out on the unit sphere a simplicial complex called the Coxeter complex. Abramenko showed that each reflecting hyperplane meets the Coxeter
Tamari Lattices for Parabolic Quotients of the Symmetric Group
We generalize the Tamari lattice by extending the notions of $231$-avoiding permutations, noncrossing set partitions, and nonnesting set partitions to parabolic quotients of the symmetric group
Doppelgängers: Bijections of Plane Partitions
We say two posets are "doppelgangers" if they have the same number of $P$-partitions of each height $k$. We give a uniform framework for bijective proofs that posets are doppelgangers by synthesizing


Foulkes characters, Eulerian idempotents, and an amazing matrix
John Holte (Am. Math. Mon. 104:138–149, 1997) introduced a family of “amazing matrices” which give the transition probabilities of “carries” when adding a list of numbers. It was subsequently shown
Permutation Statistics of Indexed Permutations
The definitions of descent, excedance, major index, inversion index and Denert's statistics for the elements of the symmetric group Ld are generalized to indexed permutation, i.e. the elementsOf the group Snd are shown to be equidistributed over Snd.
The sign representation for Shephard groups
Abstract. Shephard groups are unitary reflection groups arising as the symmetries of regular complex polytopes. For a Shephard group, we identify the representation carried by the principal ideal in
Arrangements defined by unitary reflection groups
Let V be a complex vector space of dimension I. An arrangement in V is a finite set d of hyperplanes, all containing the origin. Let L = L ( d ) be the set of intersections of elements of ~r

Finite Unitary Reflection Groups
Any finite group of linear transformations on n variables leaves invariant a positive definite Hermitian form, and can therefore be expressed, after a suitable change of variables, as a group of
