On the existence of absolutely simple abelian varieties of a given dimension over an arbitrary field
Our agent approach provides good solutions to this problem both for individual modules and the system as a whole. A module searches for a seed by moving along a gradient of least-descent.

RC and interpret the answer in terms of Solomon’s descent algebra.
Semigroups, rings, and Markov chains
In particular, we use (and include a proof of ) Bidigare’s theorem that Solomon’s descent algebra is anti-isomorphic to the W -invariant part of the semigroup algebra of Σ.
Semigroups, rings, and Markov chains
Descent sets can be characterized in terms of the semigroup structure on Σ: Proposition 4.
Semigroups, rings, and Markov chains
It can also be described as the number of w ∈ W with descent set J .
Semigroups, rings, and Markov chains
Bidigare proved that A is anti-isomorphic to Solomon’s descent algebra, which is a certain subalgebra of the group algebra kW .
Semigroups, rings, and Markov chains
Using this set of generators, Solomon deﬁned a subalgebra of kW, which has come to be known as the descent algebra.
