Isometry Classes of Generalized Associahedra
Let W be a finite Coxeter group. Generalized associahedra are convex
polytopes constructed from a permutahedron of W and an
the Coxeter graph of W. They play a fundamental role in the theory
of finite type cluster algebras initiated by Fomin and Zelevinsky,
and also appear in algebraic topology. In this article, we show
that the isometries of these polytopes are given by certain
automorphisms of oriented Coxeter graphs.
