# The Isomorphism Problem in Coxeter Groups by Patrick Bahls By Patrick Bahls

The e-book is the 1st to provide a accomplished review of the ideas and instruments presently getting used within the examine of combinatorial difficulties in Coxeter teams. it truly is self-contained, and obtainable even to complicated undergraduate scholars of mathematics.The basic objective of the ebook is to focus on approximations to the tricky isomorphism challenge in Coxeter teams. a few theorems when it comes to this challenge are acknowledged and confirmed. many of the effects addressed right here quandary stipulations which might be noticeable as various levels of area of expertise of representations of Coxeter teams. during the research, the readers are brought to a lot of instruments within the conception of Coxeter teams, drawn from dozens of modern articles by means of trendy researchers in geometric and combinatorial staff conception, between different fields. because the relevant challenge of the booklet might actually be solved quickly, the e-book goals to move extra, supplying the readers with many ideas that may be used to reply to extra basic questions. The readers are challenged to perform these ideas by means of fixing workouts, a listing of which concludes each one bankruptcy.
