Twist-rigid Coxeter groups

Pierre-Emmanuel Caprace and Piotr Przytycki

Geometry & Topology 14 (2010) 2243–2275
Abstract

We prove that two angle-compatible Coxeter generating sets of a given finitely generated Coxeter group are conjugate provided one of them does not admit any elementary twist. This confirms a basic case of a general conjecture which describes a potential solution to the isomorphism problem for Coxeter groups.
