Considered one of glossy science's most renowned and arguable figures, Jerzy Pleba ski used to be an exceptional theoretical physicist and an writer of many fascinating discoveries commonly relativity and quantum conception. identified for his extraordinary analytic skills, explosive personality, inexhaustible strength, and bohemian nights with brandy, espresso, and large quantities of cigarettes, he used to be devoted to either technology and artwork, generating innumerable handwritten articles - corresponding to monk's calligraphy - in addition to a suite of oil work.

**Symmetries, Integrable Systems and Representations**

This quantity is the results of foreign workshops; limitless research eleven – Frontier of Integrability – held at collage of Tokyo, Japan in July twenty fifth to twenty ninth, 2011, and Symmetries, Integrable structures and Representations held at Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, France in December thirteenth to sixteenth, 2011.

Sj1 . . sj2 . . sjk . . sq . Assume that ik < jk , and let tjk = sq sq−1 . . sjk . . sq−1 sq . Then, xk−1 = utjk = s1 . . si1 . . si2 . . sik . . sjk . . sq , so (xk−1 ) ≤ (u) − 1, contradicting that xk−1 ✄ u. Hence, jk ≤ ik , and by symmetry, ik ≤ jk . The equality ik = jk implies that xk−1 = xk−1 . Since the interval [xk−1 , w] by the induction assumption does not admit two distinct maximal chains with increasing labels, we conclude that m = m . ✷ From this, we can deduce the structure of intervals of length 2.

Then, w = s s1 s2 . . sq is also reduced, and there exists a reduced subword u = si1 si2 . . sik ≺ s s1 s2 . . sq . Now, si1 = s since su > u; hence, si1 si2 . . sik ≺ s1 s2 . . sq ⇒ u ≤ sw and s si1 si2 . . sik ≺ ss1 s2 . . sq ⇒ su ≤ w. 8 stw. (i) For s ∈ S, t ∈ T , s = t: w ✁ sw, tw ⇒ sw, tw ✁ 36 2. Bruhat order (ii) For s, s ∈ S: w✁sw, ws ⇒ either sw, ws ✁sws or w = sws . ✷ Recall that a poset P is said to be directed if for any u, w ∈ P , there exists z ∈ P such that u, w ≤ z. 9 Bruhat order is a directed poset.
