Embed one Coxeter System into another
@Jim: I would be very interested in a reference earlier than the Lusztig ref (as would Lusztig I guess). I think it is clear that Lusztig is aware of the general pattern that such embeddings follow. I agree the history is murky! Also +1 for "misleadingly named"! |

I don't think that this is what he means. The embedding of e.g. H_3 into D_6 doubles lengths, and so doesn't send simple reflections to reflections. |

If I remember correctly these embeddings are discussed (for the first time?) in Lusztig, "Some examples of square integrable representations of a p-adic group". See discussion around p. 636 and lovely diagram... |

Do mutually dual finite vector spaces have the same orbit cardinalities under a linear group action?
One can also prove that the number of orbits are the same using the Fourier transform. It gives a canonical isomorphism $Fun(V) \to Fun(V^*)$ and hence $Fun_G(V) \to Fun_G(V^*)$. The dimensions of both sides is the number of $G$-orbits. |

Smooth mixed hodge modules - representations of fundamental group?
It is important to specify whether one considers an integral, real or complex mixed Hodge structure. For example, the integral lattice in a variation of pure Hodge structures of weight 1 is the same as a family of smooth curves which can be interesting (even over a disc). |

Schubert varieties which admit small resolutions of singularities
It is a result of Billey and Warrington that "321 hexagon avoiding" permutations in the symmetric group admit small resolutions. See: Billey and Warrington, Kazhdan-Lusztig Polynomials for 321-hexagon-avoiding permutations, J. of Algebraic Combinatorics, v. 13 (2001), no. 2, 111--136. |

Explicit examples presheaves associated to higher direct images which fail to be sheaves
Sorry, I misread what you were saying. I agree with (i) now. |

Explicit examples presheaves associated to higher direct images which fail to be sheaves
For (i), $f$ is a fibration with fibre $S^1$ and so $f^1_*(\underline{\mathbb{Z}})$ is a locally constant sheaf with fibre $\mathbb{Z}$. As $S^2$ is simply connected, we have $f_*^1$ is the constant sheaf, so I don't agree that (i) is an example. $f^3_*$ would however give an example for (ii). |

Higher degree generalizations of the Hard Lefschetz Theorem
Hard Lefschetz can be seen as "coming from $H^*(\mathbb{P}^n)$". Next on the scale of "easy" cohomology rings are Grassmannians. I wonder if the Chern classes of the tautological bundle give $2j$-HLP's. There are explicit formulas (Pieri rule) so it shouldn't be difficult to decide... |
