Combinatorics of Centers of 0-Hecke Algebras in Type A

  • Sebastian König


A basis of the center of the 0-Hecke algebra of an arbitrary finite Coxeter group was described by He in 2015. This basis corresponds to certain equivalence classes of the Coxeter group. We consider case of the symmetric group $S_n$. Building on work of Geck, Kim and Pfeiffer, we obtain a complete set of representatives of the equivalence classes. This set is naturally parametrized by certain compositions of $n$ called maximal. We develop an explicit combinatorial description for the equivalence classes that are parametrized by the maximal compositions whose odd parts form a hook.
