The Fixed-point Partition Lattices

  title={The Fixed-point Partition Lattices},
  author={Phil W Hanlon},
Let σ be a permutation of the set {1,2, — -, n} and let Π(N) denote the lattice of partitions of {1,2, •••,%}. There is an obvious induced action of σ on Π(N); let Π(N)σ — L denote the lattice of partitions fixed by σ. The structure of L is analyzed with particular attention paid to ^f, the meet sublattice of L consisting of 1 together with all elements of L which are meets of coatoms of L. It is shown that ^ is supersolvable, and that there exists a pregeometry on the set of atoms of ~^ whose… CONTINUE READING
