Soergel bimodules are a certain tensor category which categorifies the
Hecke algebra of a Coxeter group. I will describe work in progress with
Ben Elias in which we present the category of Soergel bimodules via
generators and relations (building on earlier work of Libedinsky and
EliasKhovanov). I will explain why an important role in the story is
played by actions of Coxeter groups on categories, and how this leads
naturally to certain generalisations of the Zamolodchikov equation which
are related to the platonic solids.
