Positivity of parabolic Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials

Nicolas Libedinsky

Universidad de Chile, Chile   -

We give diagrammatic categorifications of the spherical and of the anti-spherical modules for any Coxeter group. Our main theorem gives a “light leaves” basis of morphisms in these categorifications. We deduce that all flavours of parabolic Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials have positive coefficients (for arbitrary choices of subsets of simple reflections).

Joint work with Geordie Williamson (Max Planck Institut).
