Nested Polyhedra and Indices of Orbits of Coxeter Groups of Non-Crystallographic Type

  title={Nested Polyhedra and Indices of Orbits of Coxeter Groups of Non-Crystallographic Type},
  author={Mariia Myronova and Jir{\'i} Patera and M. Szajewska},
The invariants of finite-dimensional representations of simple Lie algebras, such as even-degree indices and anomaly numbers, are considered in the context of the non-crystallographic finite reflection groups H2, H3 and H4. Using a representation-orbit replacement, the definitions and properties of the indices are formulated for individual orbits of the examined groups. The indices of orders two and four of the tensor product of k orbits are determined. Using the branching rules for the non…

Reduction of orbits of finite Coxeter groups of non-crystallographic type

A reduction of orbits of finite reflection groups to their reflection subgroups is produced by means of projection matrices, which transform points of the orbit of any group into points of the orbits

Higher indices of group representations

The nth order index of an irreducible representation of a semisimple compact Lie group, n a nonnegative even integer, is defined as the sum of nth powers of the magnitudes of the weights of the

General indices of simple Lie algebras and symmetrized product representations

In many branches of physics, it is important to know the decomposition of a product representation ρ⊗ρ⊗⋅⋅⋅⊗ ρ (n times) of identical representations ρ of a simple Lie algebra into irreducible

Nested complexes and their polyhedral realizations

This note which can be viewed as a complement to Alex Postnikov's paper math.CO/0507163, presents a self-contained overview of basic properties of nested complexes and their two dual polyhedral

On the Triangle Anomaly Number of SU($N$) Representations

A simple geometrical interpretation of the triangle anomaly number of SU(n) representations is demonstrated. The number is equal to the sum of cubes of projections of weights on the U(1) direction;

The formula by Elitzur and Nair on the global-anomaly coefficients in even (D = 2n)-dimensional space is generalized and it is shown that any irreducible representation of any Sp(N) and SU(2) group has no global anomalies in D = 8k dimensions.

Lie Groups, Lie Algebras, and Representations

An important concept in physics is that of symmetry, whether it be rotational symmetry for many physical systems or Lorentz symmetry in relativistic systems. In many cases, the group of symmetries of

Crystallography of quasicrystals; application to icosahedral symmetry

Crystallographic concepts are extended to quasicrystalline structures and applied to icosahedral quasicrystals. 2-dimensional N-fold rotational symmetries are shown to be compatible with Bravais
