Abstract. An element of a Coxeter group W is fully commutative if any two of its reduced decompositions are related by a series of transpositions of adjacent commuting generators. These elements were extensively studied by Stembridge, in particular in the finite case. They index naturally a basis of the generalized Temperley–Lieb algebra. In this work we deal with any finite or affine Coxeter group W, and we give explicit descriptions of fully commutative elements. Using our characterizations we then enumerate these elements according to their Coxeter length, and find in particular that the corrresponding growth sequence is ultimately periodic in each type. When the sequence is infinite, this implies that the associated Temperley–Lieb algebra has linear growth.

An element of a Coxeter group W is fully commutative if any two of its reduced decompositions are related by a series of transpositions of adjacent commuting generators. An element of a Coxeter group W is cyclically fully commutative if any of its cyclic shifts remains fully commutative. These elements were studied in Boothby et al.. In particular the authors enumerated cyclically fully commutative elements in all Coxeter groups having a finite number of them. In this work we characterize and enumerate cyclically fully commutative elements according to their Coxeter length in all finite or affine Coxeter groups by using a new operation on heaps, the cylindric transformation. In finite types, this refines the work of Boothby et al., by adding a new parameter. In affine type, all the results are new. In particular, we prove that there is a finite number of cyclically fully commutative logarithmic elements in all affine Coxeter groups. We study afterwards the cyclically fully commutative involutions and prove that their number is finite in all Coxeter groups.
