Sample text

In all other cases, = Z. 1) S(w) = S + ∩ w −1 S − so that a ∈ S(w) if and only if a(x) > 0 and a(w −1 x) < 0 for x ∈ C, that is to say if and only if the hyperplane Ha separates the alcoves C and w −1 C. It follows that S(w) is a finite set, and we define the length of w ∈ W to be l(w) = Card S(w). 2) S(w −1 ) = −wS(w) and hence that l(w−1 ) = l(w). 3) S(si ) = {ai } for all i ∈ I , and hence l(si ) = 1. Since W permutes S, it permutes the hyperplanes Ha (a ∈ S) and hence also the alcoves.

4) is true for λ = ϕ ∨ ). Proof In our present situation we have T0∗ = T (sψ )−1 X −ψ . 8) with w = sϕ sψ and µ = ψ we have T0∗ = T (sϕ )−1 X ψ−ϕ T (sϕ sψ ). 3), and therefore ∨ T0∗ Y ϕ T0∗ = q −1 Y ϕ ∨ −ψ ∨ . 5) Let L ψ = {λ ∈ L :< λ , ψ> = 0}. 1) it is enough to prove that T0∗ commutes with Y λ for λ ∈ L ψ . 13). 1) we have ∨ T0∗ Y ϕ T0∗ Y ψ ∨ −ϕ ∨ = q −1 = T0∗ Y ψ ∨ ∨ ∨ −ϕ ∨ ∨ T0∗ Y ϕ . Hence T0∗ commutes with Y 2ϕ −ψ . 11). 1) ∨ ∨ ∨ ∨ ∨ ∨ T2 Y α1 T2 = Y α1 +α2 , T3 Y α2 T3 = Y α2 +α3 and since T0∗ commutes with T2 and T3 , it is enough to verify that T0∗ commutes ∨ with Y α1 .

1) we have (1) Y εi+1 = Ti−1 Y εi Ti−1 Now t(ε1 ) = s0 s1 · · · sn · · · s2 s1 is a reduced expression, so that (2) Y ε1 = T0 T1 · · · Tn · · · T2 T1 . (1 ≤ i ≤ n − 1). 6 The case R = R 51 From (1) and (2) we have −1 · · · T1−1 T0 T1 · · · Tn · · · Ti+1 Ti . Y εi = Ti−1 Since T0∗ commutes with T2 , T3 , . . , Tn , it is enough to show that T0∗ commutes with T1−1 T0 T1 , or equivalently that T0 commutes with T1 T0∗ T1−1 . 2). Since X ε2 , T2 , T3 , . . , Tn all commute with T0 , so also does T1 T0∗ T1−1 .
