A Note on Exponents vs Root Heights for Complex Simple Lie Algebras

Sankaran Viswanath

Abstract


We give an elementary combinatorial proof of a special case of a result due to Bazlov and Ion concerning the Fourier coefficients of the Cherednik kernel. This can be used to give yet another proof of the classical fact that for a complex simple Lie algebra $\mathfrak{ g}$, the partition formed by the exponents of $\mathfrak{ g}$ is dual to that formed by the numbers of positive roots at each height.
