Let \({\mathcal A}\) be a Coxeter hyperplane arrangement, i.e. an arrangement of reflecting hyperplanes of an irreducible finite Coxeter group. A deformations of \({\mathcal A}\) is an affine arrangement such that the hyperplanes are parallel to some hyperplane of \({\mathcal A}\).
A survey about the work on deformation of Coxeter arrangements concerning the combinatorial and algebraic properties related to their characteristic polynomial is given.
