Abstract We provide several characterizations of the “λ-minuscule” elements of Weyl groups studied by D. Peterson and R. A. Proctor and extend Proctor's classification from the simply-laced case to the general case.

Enumeration for strong minuscule elements in the Weyl group of type A
In the case of finite-dimensional simple Lie algebra of type A, we enumerate special classes of pre-dominant integral weights and dominant minuscule elements. In addition, as an application, we give
On dominance and minuscule Weyl group elements
Fix a Dynkin graph and let λ be a coweight. When does there exist an element w of the corresponding Weyl group such that w is λ-minuscule and w(λ) is dominant? We answer this question for general
Cyclotomic quiver Hecke algebras corresponding to minuscule representations
In the paper, we give an explicit basis of the cyclotomic quiver Hecke algebra corresponding to a minuscule representation of finite type.
Perfect Codes for Generalized Deletions from Minuscule Elements of Weyl Groups
This paper discusses a connection between insertion/deletion (ID) codes and minuscule elements of Weyl groups.
Some combinatorial aspects of generalised Bott-Samelson varieties.
We obtain two combinatorial results: an equality of Weyl groups and an inequality of roots, in the setting of generalised Bott-Samelson resolutions of minuscule Schubert varieties. These results are

Minimal rational curves on generalized Bott–Samelson varieties
We investigate families of minimal rational curves on Schubert varieties, their Bott–Samelson desingularizations, and their generalizations constructed by Nicolas Perrin in the minuscule case. In

Towards a Littlewood-Richardson rule for Kac-Moody homogeneous spaces
We prove a general combinatorial formula yielding the intersection number $c_{u,v}^w$ of three particular $\Lambda$-minuscule Schubert classes in any Kac-Moody homogeneous space, generalising the
On a conjecture of Kottwitz and Rapoport
We prove a conjecture of Kottwitz and Rapoport which implies a converse to Mazur's Inequality for all split and quasi-split (connected) reductive groups. These results are related to the


Quasi-Minuscule Quotients and Reduced Words for Reflections
We study the reduced expressions for reflections in Coxeter groups, with particular emphasis on finite Weyl groups. For example, the number of reduced expressions for any reflection can be expressed
Nilpotent Orbits and Commutative Elements
Abstract Let W be a simply laced Coxeter group with generating set S , and let W c denote the subset consisting of those elements whose reduced expressions have no substrings of the form sts for any
Dynkin Diagram Classification of λ-Minuscule Bruhat Lattices and of d-Complete Posets
Abstractd-Complete posets are defined to be posets which satisfy certain local structural conditions. These posets play or conjecturally play several roles in algebraic combinatorics related to the
Minuscule Elements of Weyl Groups, the Numbers Game, andd-Complete Posets
Abstract Certain posets associated to a restricted version of the numbers game of Mozes are shown to be distributive lattices. The posets of join irreducibles of these distributive lattices are
Reflection Groups and Coxeter Groups
This chapter is of an auxiliary nature and contains the modicum of the theory of finite reflection groups and Coxeter groups which we need for a systematic development of the theory of Coxeter

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
