Geometric theory of invariants of groups generated by reflections

A survey of results on a number of problems of the geometric theory of invariants of groups generated by orthogonal and skew reflections is given. The paper is a continuation of the author's surveys

Fundamental theorems for invariants of a class of pseudo-reflection groups

First and second fundamental theorems are given for polynomial invariants of an infinite class of pseudo-reflection groups (including the Weyl groups of type Bn), under the assumption that the order

Real Quantifier Elimination in Practice

A survey over the knowledge on some structural properties of such rings and fields of invariants as polynomials and rational functions which are invariant under the action of a finite linear group.

On enumerating factorizations in reflection groups

We describe an approach, via Malle's permutation $\Psi$ on the set of irreducible characters $\text{Irr}(W)$, that gives a uniform derivation of the Chapuy-Stump formula for the enumeration of

Isometric Actions of Lie Groups and Invariants

This are the notes of a lecture course held by P. Michor at the University of Vienna in the academic year 1992/1993, written by Konstanze Rietsch. The lecture course was held again in the academic

Normal Reflection Subgroups

We study normal reflection subgroups of complex reflection groups. Our point of view leads to a refinement of a theorem of Orlik and Solomon to the effect that the generating function for fixed-space

Basic Invariants of Finite Reflection Groups

Abstract Any finite reflection group G admits a distinguished basis of G -invariants canonically attached to a certain system of invariant differential equations. We determine it explicitly for

Invariant Rings and Fields of Finite Groups

An overview over recent developments of algorithms for computing free resolutions based on Grobner basis techniques realizes the following main ideas: Minimization of resolutions are integrated as much as possible into the standard basis algorithm.

Subspace arrangements and motives of classifying stacks of reflection groups

We study some combinatorial aspects of a subspace arrangement associated to every faithful representation of finite groups, with a view on the triviality problem for motivic classes of classifying
