### Can Matsumoto's theorem for the symmetric group be proved using a monovariant?

This is a question that can be asked for any Coxeter group, but for the sake of simplicity I will restrict myself to symmetric groups. Recall the main definitions: Let $n$ be a nonnegative integer. ...

### How to classify rings by combinatorial structures?

There are many ways to encode information about algebraic structures such as groups, rings, etc... in combinatorial form. For example the Cayley graph of a group with a subset of generators, or the ...

### Chip-firing clocks

Let $G$ be some outdegree-regular directed graph with $n$ vertices and let $H$ be the Laplacian of $G$, so that the rows of $H$ correspond to chip-firing moves. I’m interested in linear functions $f$ ...

### Updates to Stanley's 1999 survey of positivity problems in algebraic combinatorics?

[I am a co-moderator of the recently started Open Problems in Algebraic Combinatorics blog and as a result starting doing some searching for existing surveys of open problems in algebraic ...
Every simple group below are assumed non-abelian. Let us call the class number $k(G)$ of a finite group $G$ the number of its conjugacy classes (also, the number of its irreducible complex ...
For $w$ a permutation, the associated (ordinary) Schubert polynomial $\mathfrak{S}_w(\textbf{x})$ is a multivariate polynomial that represents for the cohomology class of the Schubert variety $X_w$ in ...
