### Cluster algebra structure compatible with Poisson brackets

Let $X$ be a Poisson variety. There is a concept "cluster algebra structure compatible with Poisson structure" introduced in the paper. Suppose that we construct a maximal independent set of ...

### Cluster algebra structure on the coordinate ring of $Mat_3$

Let $Mat_3$ be the set of all 3 by 3 matrices. I have some questions on the cluster algebra structure on the coordinate ring of $Mat_3$. We use $\Delta_{j_1\ldots j_n}^{i_1\ldots i_n}$ to denote the ...

### Cluster Variables for non-convex n-gons

Most of the lectures and lecture notes on Cluster Algebras (at least from Combinatorial point of view) start with mutations of the diagonals of a convex n-gon (mostly the pentagon) as the illustration ...

### Quiver folding and maximal green sequences

The technique of quiver folding (please see Folding by Automorphisms) can be used to prove statements about non-simply laced quivers (i.e. valued quivers) when they are already known in the simply-...

### Proof of Laurent Phenomenon for Cluster Algebras

I went through the proof of the Laurent phenomenon for Cluster Algebras in Fomin and Zelevinsky's initial paper: Cluster Algebras I: Foundations. I am stuck at their claim that the gcd of two exchange ...

### Characteristics of $c$-vectors of acyclic cluster algebras

In Speyer and Thomas's work, Acyclic Cluster Algebras Revisited the characteristics of $c$-vectors of cluster algebras with the $B$-matrix of the initial seed acyclic are given in Theorem 1.4. Do we ...

### Do we have super Plucker relations for a super Grassmannian?

Super Grassmannians are introduced by Manin, see for example. We have Plucker relation for Grassmannian. Are there some references about super Plucker relations for super Grassmannian? Thank you ...

### Why are exchange graphs of quivers with the same underlying graph but have different orientations isomorphic?

I know the fact that (undirected) exchange graphs of quivers with the same underlying undirected graph but have different orientations are isomorphic (i.e. quivers that are just finitely many arrow-...

### Generalized Gaussian Decomposition

Let $G$ be a connected complex semisimple Lie group. Let $H$ be a maximal torus of $G$, let $W$ be the Weyl group of $G$, and let $N_\pm$ be a pair of opposite maximal unipotent subgroups. For each ...

### How to flip one triangulation on a surface into another

Let $S$ be a compact orientable surface and $p_1,\dots, p_n\in S$ be distinct points. We consider all triangulations on $S$ with vertices $p_1,\dots, p_n$. Is there an algorithm which takes two ...

### What is a good introduction to cluster algebras from surfaces?

What is a good reference for cluster algebras from surfaces, with a view to their connection to Teichmuller theory? In my view, that means it should start off with unpunctured surfaces (and in fact,...

### Testing membership in a cluster algebra

Say I have a cluster algebra with principal coefficients and initial cluster $x_1,\ldots,x_n$. I don't want to invert the coefficient variables $y_1,\ldots,y_n$. The Laurent Phenomenon says that ...

Background Fomin and Zelevinsky have introduced cluster algebras in an influential article. To define a cluster algebra, Fomin and Zelevinsky have defined a mutation of seeds. Here, a seed $(\mathbf{... 0answers 131 views ### Mutation is an involution Let$Q$be a finite quiver and let$\mu_{k}$denote mutation at a vertex$k$. Why is this an involution? I don't see it clear (should be easy though..) 2answers 1k views ### What do cluster algebras tell us about Grassmannians? One of the first examples of a cluster algebra given in Fomin and Zelevinsky's original paper is the homogeneous coordinate ring$\mathbb{C}[G_{2,n}]$of the Grassmannian of planes in$\mathbb{C}^n$. ... 0answers 311 views ### Motivic DT-Invariants for the Algebro-Geophobic I am looking for as gentle of possible of an introduction to Kontsevich-Soibelman's theory of motivic DT-invariants. Specifically I am interested in the algebraic aspects of the theory and the ... 0answers 304 views ### “Natural” Poisson structure on$(\mathbb{P}^1)^N$Recently there is some interest in the Poisson geometry of "cluster manifolds", which are varieties associated to cluster algebras. See for example the works of Gekhtman, Shapiro and Vainshtein. In ... 0answers 434 views ### Catalan objects associated to a univariate polynomial Given a monic degree$n$polynomial$f(z)$with no double roots, and a phase$0\leq \theta < \pi$, there are natural constructions which associate to this data: a noncrossing matching on$2n$... 2answers 435 views ### Do Denominator Vectors Determine the Cluster Variable Given a cluster algebra$A=A(\mathbf{x},Q)$, the Laurent Phenomenon states that all the cluster variables of$A$are Laurent polynomials in the elements of$\mathbf{x}$. Thus, any cluster variable$y$... 1answer 451 views ### Are cluster variables prime elements? Cluster algebras introduction A cluster algebra is a subalgebra$A$of$k[x_1^{\pm1},...,x_n^{\pm1}]$generated by a set of cluster variables, which are elements which can be generated from the set$\...
