Title: Mutations of reflections and existence of pseudo-acyclic orderings for type An
Abstract: In a recent paper by K.-H. Lee, K. Lee and M. Mills, a mutation of reflections in the universal Coxeter group is defined in association with a mutation of a quiver. A matrix representation of these reflections is determined by a linear ordering on the set of vertices of the quiver. It was conjectured that there exists an ordering — which we call a pseudo-acyclic ordering — such that whenever two mutation sequences of a quiver lead to the same labeled seed, the representations of the associated reflections also coincide. We prove this conjecture for every quiver mutation-equivalent to an orientation of a type An Dynkin diagram by decomposing a mutation sequence into a product of elementary swaps and checking relations studied by Barot and Marsh. This is a joint work with Blake Jackson, Kyu-Hwan Lee, and Kyungyong Lee.
