Coxeter-Dynkin Diagram

A labeled graph whose nodes are indexed by the generators of a Coxeter Group having $(P_i, P_j)$ as an Edge labeled by $M_{ij}$ whenever $M_{ij}>2$, where $M_{ij}$ is an element of the Coxeter Matrix. Coxeter-Dynkin diagrams are used to visualize Coxeter Groups. A Coxeter-Dynkin diagram is associated with each Rational Double Point (Fischer 1986).
