Combinatorial invariance conjecture for $\widetilde{A}_2$

The combinatorial invariance conjecture (due independently to G. Lusztig and M. Dyer) predicts that if $[x,y]$ and $[x',y']$ are isomorphic Bruhat posets (of possibly different Coxeter systems), then the corresponding Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials are equal, i.e., $P_{x,y}(q)=P_{x',y'}(q)$. In this talk we prove this conjecture for the affine Weyl group of type $\widetilde{A}_2$. This is the first non-trivial case where this conjecture is verified for an infinite group.

Joint work with Gastón Burrul (The University of Sidney, Australia), and Nicolás Libedinsky (Universidad de Chile, Chile).
