How many maximal length Bruhat paths from $u$ to $w$ can there be?

I've been doing some work with saturated Bruhat paths in a Coxeter group between two elements $u\leq w$. It seems to me that if $\ell(u) =0$, then there are at most $\ell(w)! $. I haven't tried to ...

Characterization of permutations which have at most one successor in the covering relation of the weak Bruhat order

Let $W$ be the symmetric group on $n+1$ letters. Let $\ell$ be the length function on $W$. As the title says, can we characterize all $v\in W$ such that there exists a $w\in W$ such that for all ...

There are no “holes” in the Bruhat decomposition of parabolic cell $Pw_1P$

Let $G$ be a split reductive algebraic group (over a local field if you like), $B$ be a fixed Borel subgroup, and $P$ be a fixed standard parabolic subgroup. Let $W$ be the Weyl group of $G$. For $w\...

A hard Lefschetz theorem for nilCoxeter algebras

Let $W$ be a finite Coxeter group and $\mathcal{N}(W)$ its nilCoxeter algebra (over the reals, say), as defined at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nil-Coxeter_algebra. $\mathcal{N}(W)$ has a natural ...

Bruhat order of reflection subgroups

Let $(W,S)$ be a Coxeter group, $T=\bigcup_{w\in W}wSw^{-1}$ its set of reflections, and $A\subseteq T$. From results of Dyer and Deodhar, we know that the subgroup $W_A$ generated by the elements of $...

Can Bruhat cells in semi simple groups be induced from matrices?

Let $G$ be a semisimple Lie group. Embed it as a subgroup into a special linear group of suitable rank, $SL(n)$ (real or complex). The question is: is it always possible to find such an embedding, ...

Principal Order Ideals in the Weak Bruhat Order

Let $\sigma\in S_n$ be a permutation on $n$ elements, and $\mathrm{Inv}(\sigma):=\{(i,j) : 1\leq i<j\leq n\text{ and }\sigma(i)>\sigma(j)\}$ be its set of inversions. In the weak order on ...

Bruhat order and Schubert cycles

I am looking for a good (textbook) reference for the basic fact (due to Chevalley) that for every semisimple Lie group $G$ (without compact factors) with Weyl group $W$, the Bruhat order on $W$ ...

points with small U stabilizer on a spherical variety

Let $(G,H)$ be a spherical pair (i.e. $G$ is a reductive group, $H$ is a closed subgroup and the Borel subgroup $B$ of $G$ has a finite number of orbits on $G/H$). Let $U$ be the unipotent radical of $...

Edge graph of the polytope of a Bruhat interval

Let $\Gamma$ be a Coxeter group on some generating set $S$, with reflection representation $V$. Then $\Gamma$ has two standard partial orders, the weak and strong Bruhat orders. Moreover, if $\lambda ...

Bruhat order and the Robinson-Schensted correspondence

The Robinson-Schensted correspondence is a bijection between elements of the symmetric group $S_n$ and pairs of standard tableaux of the same shape. The symmetric group is partially ordered by the ...

Kazhdan-Luzstig Polynomials and Lower Intervals in the Bruhat Order

I have read in a number of places that the lower Bruhat interval $[e, w]$ is rank-symmetric if and only if the KL-polynomial $P_{e, w}(q) = 1$. All of the proofs I've come across use "rationally ...

Are plactic classes convex under the right weak Bruhat order?

For those who are unfamiliar with the terminology, I'll explain a little. The symmetric group $S_n$, as a type A Coxeter group, has generators $\{s_1,\ldots,s_{n-1}\}$ with relations (1) $s_i^2$ for ...

Reference for: the Bruhat-minimal permutations not less than a fixed permutation pi?

Let $\pi\in S_n$. I recently needed to understand the permutations $\rho$ such that $\rho\not\leq\pi$ in Bruhat order. Since there are $O(n!)$ of those I really wanted a description of the $O(n^2)$ ...
