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,...

Cluster algebras and cluster varieties

I have a really basic question about cluster algebras and cluster varieties. According to the definition of Fomin-Zelevinsky a cluster algebra is generated by a bunch of polynomial rings inside the ...

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 ...

When is a $2$-Calabi–Yau triangulated category the cluster category of a QP?

Keller–Reiten's main theorem in Acyclic Calabi–Yau categories implies that if $\mathcal{C}$ is a $2$-Calabi–Yau (algebraic) triangulated category admitting a cluster-tilting object $T$ such that the ...

cluster variables and L-functions

There is something in common between cluster variables in the theory of cluster algebras, L-functions in number theory, namely the fact that both map direct sums to products, just like ...

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 ...

Finding particular reduced words for Weyl group elements

I am studying cluster algebra structures on the coordinate rings of partial flag varieties, as defined in the paper Partial flag varieties and preprojective algebras by Geiss, Leclerc and Schröer. One ...

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 ...

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-...

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 ...
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..)
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 ...
