Pfeiffer, Götz, & Randriamaro, Hery. (2018). The Varchenko determinant of a Coxeter arrangement. Journal of Group Theory, 21(4), 651-665. doi:10.1515/jgth-2018-0009
The Varchenko determinant is the determinant of a matrix defined from an arrangement of hyperplanes. Varchenko proved that this determinant has a beautiful factorization. It is, however, not possible to use this factorization to compute a Varchenko determinant from a certain level of complexity. Precisely at this point, we provide an explicit formula for this determinant for the hyperplane arrangements associated to the finite Coxeter groups. The intersections of hyperplanes with the chambers of such arrangements have nice properties which play a central role for the calculation of their associated determinants.
