Quiver Presentations for Descent Algebras of Exceptional Type.

25 pages. Preprint IRL-GLWY-2008-002. arXiv:0810.2743.


The descent algebra of a finite Coxeter group W is a basic algebra, and as such it has a presentation as quiver with relations. In recent work, we have developed a combinatorial framework which allows us to systematically compute such a quiver presentation for a Coxeter group of a given type. In this article, we use that framework to determine quiver presentations for the descent algebras of the Coxeter groups of exceptional or non-crystallographic type, i.e., of type E6, E7, E8, F4, H3, H4 or I2(m).
