Description (last modified by )
The root system / coxeter group code is designed from the ground up to allow for this extension.
Steps:
- Double check
CartanType(["H",3]).coxeter_diagram()
and friends
- Given a coxeter diagram, construct the dynkin diagram
g
corresponding to the geometric representation; most of the time, this will involve roots of unity, and require e.g. a cyclotomic field (see also #8327)
- Make sure that
L = RootSystem(g).root_space()
accepts such a diagram
- Make sure that
WeylGroup(L)
accepts such a root space
- Fix all the interfaces to properly reflect the generalization (e.g. WeylGroup? above should really be CoxeterGroup?).

- Status changed from new to needs_review
Here's a patch which should take care of all except the second point since I thought Dynkin diagrams where separate from Coxeter diagrams except when there are 1,2,3, or 4 bonds (and even then, we're ignoring the arrows).
Base patch is from #15137, but now uses the UCF as the default field.

there are some failing doctests
EDIT: hmm, it rather seems to be a problem with the patchbot..

Yep, something is up with the patchbot, so I gave it a kick.

The problem was the conversion from gap's cyclotomics to sage by using the UCF. This is fixed in #15204.
sage: W = CoxeterGroup([[1,3,2],[3,1,6],[2,6,1]]) sage: W._test_matrix_generators()

Hello, I have a few comments and questions
"assert implementation" : I think this use of assert to check input is not encouraged
"lazy_import('sage.groups.raag', 'RightAngledArtinGroup?')" : has this something to do in this ticket ?
What are the changes "sage/groups/matrix_gps/finitely_generated.py" for ?

Hey Frederic,
Replying to chapoton:
"assert implementation" : I think this use of assert to check input is not encouraged
This was a hold-over from the previous implementation, but this is definitely a good time to get rid of it. Fixed.
"lazy_import('sage.groups.raag', 'RightAngledArtinGroup?')" : has this something to do in this ticket ?
Because I didn't split it cleanly with #15137. Fixed.
What are the changes "sage/groups/matrix_gps/finitely_generated.py" for ?
I need to pass the CoxeterGroups
category up during the initialization, so I had to make those changes.
Thanks for catching that,
Travis

Well, it seems that the patch triggers the import of numpy at startup. I have not tried to investigate where this happens.

I made CoxeterMatrixGroup
lazy import in to fix the numpy startup import.

Hello Travis,
I have made a cosmetic review patch, that you can fold into yours if you want.
This almost looks good to go, but I was a bit disappointed when I tried:
sage: K = NumberField(x**2+5,'t') sage: CoxeterGroup(['H',3],base_ring=K)
and it failed. If there is a way to make that work, it would be great !
comment:17 Changed 9 years ago by
ok, I can see no easy way to do that. Let us forget this for the moment.
Good to go ?

Hey Frederic,
I can't see an easy way to do so either. There might be a solution, but it'll probably be either complicated or cumbersome.
Thanks for doing the review,
Travis
