Review

From the reviews:

"This largely self-contained text provides an intuitive and interdisciplinary treatment of Coxeter matroids, a new and beautiful generalization of matroids which is based on a finite Coxeter group."

― ZENTRALBLATT MATH

"...this accessible and well-written book, intended to be "a cross between a postgraduate text and a research monograph," is well worth reading and makes a good case for doing matroids with mirrors."

― SIAM REVIEW

"This accessible and well-written book, intended to be ‘a cross between a postgraduate text and a research monograph,’ is well worth reading and makes a good case for doing matroids with mirrors." (Joseph Kung, SIAM Review, Vol. 46 (3), 2004)

"This accessible and well-written book, designed to be ‘a cross between a postgraduate text and a research monograph’, should win many converts.”(MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS)

From the Back Cover

Matroids appear in diverse areas of mathematics, from combinatorics to algebraic topology and geometry. This largely self-contained text provides an intuitive and interdisciplinary treatment of Coxeter matroids, a new and beautiful generalization of matroids which is based on a finite Coxeter group.

Key topics and features:

* Systematic, clearly written exposition with ample references to current research
* Matroids are examined in terms of symmetric and finite reflection groups
* Finite reflection groups and Coxeter groups are developed from scratch
* The Gelfand-Serganova theorem is presented, allowing for a geometric interpretation of matroids and Coxeter matroids as convex polytopes with certain symmetry properties
* Matroid representations in buildings and combinatorial flag varieties are studied in the final chapter
* Many exercises throughout
* Excellent bibliography and index

Accessible to graduate students and research mathematicians alike, "Coxeter Matroids" can be used as an introductory survey, a graduate course text, or a reference volume.
