For a finite real reflection group \(W\) and a \(W\)orbit \(\mathcal{O}\) of flats in its reflection arrangement—or equivalently a conjugacy class of its parabolic subgroups—the authors introduce a statistic \(\operatorname{noninv}_\mathcal{O}(w)\) on \(w\) in \(W\) that counts the number of “\(\mathcal{O}\)noninversions” of \(w\). This generalizes the classical (non)inversion statistic for permutations \(w\) in the symmetric group \(\mathfrak{S}_n\). The authors then study the operator \(\nu_\mathcal{O}\) of rightmultiplication within the group algebra \(\mathbb{C} W\) by the element that has \(\operatorname{noninv}_\mathcal{O}(w)\) as its coefficient on \(w\).
