### cone structure of complement of hyperplanes

I want to know if in $\mathbb{R}^{m+3}$ we consider the following hyperplanes: \begin{cases} (1-g)y-\sum_{i\in I}x_i=0, & \text{if $I\subset\{1,\cdots,m+2\}$},|I|=g\\ gy-\sum_{i\in I}x_i+\...

### Possible "algebraic" direction in hyperplane arrangements

I have been studying hyperplane arrangements from R. Stanley's notes and so far, I have read until lecture 5. But, Lecture 6 and end of Lecture 5 seems very combinatorial. I'm more interested in the &...

### Salvetti complexes and cohomology of affine completion of Artin groups $E_6$ and $E_7$

After the solution of the Brieskorn-Arnold Pham conjecture on the asphericity of a space for affine Artin groups by Paolini and Salvetti MR4243019 (arXiv), I would like to know if there are ...

### Orlik-Solomon algebra and hyperplane complements in positive characteristic

Let $k$ be an algebraically closed field of characteristic $p\geq 0$, $\underline H:=\{H_1,\dots, H_m\}$ a set of hyperplanes in $\mathbb A_k^n$ and $X:=\mathbb A^n-(\bigcup H_i)$. Given a ring $R$ ...

### Secant variety to a zero-dimensional projective variety

This is a reference request/nomenclature question. Let $A \subseteq \mathbb{P}^n$ be a finite set of points not contained in a hyperplane (over some field), and let $\sigma_r(A)$ be the $r$-th secant ...

### Number of regions formed by $n$ points in general position

Given $n$ points in $\mathbb{R}^d$ in general position, where $n\geq d+1$. For every $d$ points, form the hyperplane defined by these $d$ points. These hyperplanes cut $\mathbb{R}^d$ into several ...

### Bijection directly from (n,n+1)-core partitions to parking functions?

It is well-known that the increasing parking functions are counted by the Catalan numbers. The Catalan numbers also count the dominant alcoves in the Shi arrangement of type $A_{n}$. Athanasiadis-...

### Counting the polytopes of the translates of the resonance hyperplane arrangement inside the unit hypercube

Let $n$ be a positive natural number. For all $\emptyset \subset S \subseteq \{1, \ldots, n\}$ and $k \in \mathbb{Z}$, define the hyperplane $H(S,k)$ in $\mathbb{R}^n$ given by the equations H(S,k):=...

### Is there invariant for regions of central hyperplane arrangement?

Consider central hyperplane arrangement A with normal vectors with all combinations of -1 and 1 (is there name for it?). There is simple invariant for each chamber of A: sum of vectors, corresponding ...

### What are Sylvester-Gallai configurations in the complex projective plane?

A Sylvester-Gallai configuration in the the complex projective plane is a finite number of $n\ge 2$ points in the complex projective plane such that there is no line through exactly two of them. ...

### Affine Hyperplane Arrangements in $\mathbb R^d$

Consider $\mathcal A=(u_i)_{i=1}^m$ to be a set of hyperplanes in $\mathbb R^d$, such that for every $1\leq i \leq m$: $u_i \in \mathbb R^d$. These hyperplanes are disconnecting $\mathbb R^d$ to ...

### Counting Regions in Hyperplane Arranglements

Consider the following: 1) How many connected regions can $n$ hyperplanes form in $\mathbb R^d$? 2) What if the set of hyperplanes are homogeneous? 3) Given a set of $n$ pairs of ...

### Is there any notion of a slack-matrix (and its rank) for a hyperplane arrangement?

I am assuming that the common lineality space of the hyperplane arrangement has already been factored out. So we are looking at an effective" arrangement in lower dimensions where all the polyhedra ...

### Chambers of central hyperplane arrangements

Let $\mathcal{A}$ be a central hyperplane arrangement in a (finite dimensional) real vector space $V$. Assume for each hyperplane $H\in\mathcal{A}$ that we're given a labelling $H^+$, $H^-$ of the ...

### Characterizing normal vectors of affinely independent subsets of the hypercube

Suppose we are looking at the hypercube in $\mathbb{R}^n$. I tend to the think of the cube with vertex coordinates 0 or 1, but maybe this is easier for the $\pm1$ cube. Now suppose we have an affine ...
### Maximal Number of Pairs of Orthogonal vectors in a set of $n$ vectors in $\mathbb{R}^3$
Suppose you are given a set of $n$ non-zero vectors in $\mathbb{R}^3$. What is the maximum number of pairs of them that are orthogonal? The current guess is $\le 2n$. EDIT: I forgot to add that no ...
