@article{DorpalenBarry2021WhitneyNF, title={Whitney Numbers for Poset Cones}, author={Galen Dorpalen-Barry and Jang Soo Kim and Victor Reiner}, journal={Order}, year={2021}, volume={38}, pages={283-322} }

Hyperplane arrangements dissect ℝ n $\mathbb {R}^{n}$ into connected components called chambers, and a well-known theorem of Zaslavsky counts chambers as a sum of nonnegative integers called Whitney numbers of the first kind. His theorem generalizes to count chambers within any cone defined as the intersection of a collection of halfspaces from the arrangement, leading to a notion of Whitney numbers for each cone. This paper focuses on cones within the braid arrangement, consisting of the…

It is shown that the topes of a complex of oriented matroids (abbreviated COM) of VC-dimension d admit a proper labeled sample compression scheme of size d, which is a step towards the sample compression conjecture.

### Gorenstein braid cones and crepant resolutions

- Mathematics
- 2021

To any poset P , we associate a convex cone called a braid cone. We also associate a fan and study the toric varieties the cone and fan define. The fan always defines a smooth toric variety XP ,…

For (W, S) a Coxeter group, we study sets of the form W/V = {w E W I l(wv) = 1(w) + I(v) for all v E V}, where V C W. Such sets W/V, here called generalized quotients, are shown to have much of the…
