Around Solomon’s descent algebras. (English) Zbl 1193.20046
Summary: We study different problems related to Solomon’s descent algebra \(\Sigma(W)\) of a finite Coxeter group \((W,S)\): positive elements, morphisms between descent algebras, Loewy length…. One of the main result is that, if \(W\) is irreducible and if the longest element is central, then the Loewy length of \(\Sigma(W)\) is equal to \(\Bigl\lceil\tfrac{|S|}{2}\Bigr\rceil\).
