ABSTRACT

The higher Bruhat orders are a generalization of weak Bruhat order on S_n.
They can be defined combinatorially in terms of inversion sets,
generalizing the notion of inversion set of a permutation, or geometically
as sets of dfaces of an ncube, generalizing the description of S_n as
paths through an ncube. The higher StasheffTamari posets (which
generalize the Tamari lattices) have an analogous geometric definition
where the cube is replaced by a simplex. In this talk, I will review all
the necessary definitions, and then discuss a new combinatorial "inversion
set" description of the higher StasheffTamari posets which amounts to
giving from each StasheffTamari poset into a corresponding higher Bruhat
order.
