Sortable elements and Cambrian lattices. (English) Zbl 1184.20038
Summary: We show that the Coxeter-sortable elements in a finite Coxeter group \(W\) are the minimal congruence-class representatives of a lattice congruence of the weak order on \(W\). We identify this congruence as the Cambrian congruence on \(W\), so that the Cambrian lattice is the weak order on Coxeter-sortable elements. These results exhibit \(W\)-Catalan combinatorics arising in the context of the lattice theory of the weak order on \(W\).
