A Geometric and Combinatorial Exploration of Hochschild Lattices
Hochschild lattices are specific intervals in the dexter meet-semilattices recently introduced by Chapoton. A natural geometric realization of these lattices leads to some cell complexes introduced by Saneblidze, called the Hochschild polytopes. We obtain several geometrical properties of the Hochschild lattices, namely we give cubic realizations, establish that these lattices are EL-shellable, and show that they are constructible by interval doubling. We also prove several combinatorial properties as the enumeration of their $k$-chains and compute their degree polynomials.
