Groupoids, root systems and weak order
Several (largely equivalent) points of view for notions of groupoid with root system will be described. They are obtained by abstracting basic properties of Coxeter groups, such as the symmetric groups, with their root systems and weak orders. This talk will focus on examples and on aspects of the theory which generalize defining properties of Coxeter groups, such as the exchange condition and their presentations by braid relations.
