A Combinatorial Formula for Orthogonal Idempotents in the $0$-Hecke Algebra of the Symmetric Group

Tom Denton


Building on the work of P.N. Norton, we give combinatorial formulae for two maximal decompositions of the identity into orthogonal idempotents in the $0$-Hecke algebra of the symmetric group, $\mathbb{C}H_0(S_N)$. This construction is compatible with the branching from $S_{N-1}$ to $S_{N}$.
