Posets can be viewed as subsets of the type-A root system that satisfy certain properties. Geometric objects arising from posets, such as order cones, order polytopes, and chain polytopes, have been widely studied. In 1993, Vic Reiner introduced signed posets, which are subsets of the type-B root system that satisfy the same properties. In this talk, we will explore the analogue of order and chain polytopes in this setting, focusing on the Ehrhart theory of these objects.
