Minuscule elements of Weyl groups, the numbers game, and \(d\)-complete posets. (English) Zbl 0969.05068
Summary: Certain posets associated to a restricted version of the numbers game of Mozes are shown to be distributive lattices. The posets of join irreducibles of these distributive lattices are characterized by a collection of local structural properties, which form the definition of \(d\)-complete poset. In representation-theoretic language, the top ‘minuscule portions’ of weight diagrams for integrable representations of simply laced Kac-Moody algebras are shown to be distributive lattices. These lattices form a certain family of intervals of weak Bruhat orders. These Bruhat lattices are useful in studying reduced decompositions of \(\lambda\)-minuscule elements of Weyl groups and their associated Schubert varieties. The \(d\)-complete posets have recently been proven to possess both the hook length and the jeu de taquin properties.
