The PBW filtration and convex polytopes in type B. (English) Zbl 06934116
Summary: We study the PBW filtration on irreducible finite-dimensional representations for the Lie algebra of type \(\mathtt{B}_n\). We prove in various cases, including all multiples of the adjoint representation and all irreducible finite-dimensional representations for \(\mathtt{B}_3\), that there exists a normal polytope such that the lattice points of this polytope parametrize a basis of the corresponding associated graded space. As a consequence we obtain several classes of examples for favourable modules and graded combinatorial character formulas.
