Have lapsed in the former eternities,—
When the day is come which we see not yet,—
When the sea gives up its dead—

These books shall be opened and read!

To-day encounters our unguarded breast;
She looks with majesty, and moves with state:
Unbent her soul, and in misfortune great,
She scorns the world, and dares the rage of Fate.

And saw one move among them was gone from me a year,
Her nut-brown curls so fine and free, her slender shape I knew–
Christ keep us from such sorrow as filled her eyes of blue.
"Bereft" by Anna Johnston MacManus

Locked and Unlocked Polygonal Chains in 3D
Recall that whereas in the former action application of si amounts to moving all non-forbidden chains for si , this is limited in the latter action to moving the subset of open chains.
Some bijective correspondences involving domino tableaux
We shall in fact prove the stronger statement that moving any open chain is compatible with the bijection of [CaLe, Theorem 7.3]: on the first factor (the Yamanouchi domino tableau) the corresponding open chain is moved, while the second factor (the Young tableau) is unchanged.
Some bijective correspondences involving domino tableaux
In will be necessary to limit the type of chains in order to obtain the desired properties; in particular commutation with coplactic operations is obtained for the operation of moving open chains.

However, open chains are never blocked, so in particular moving open chains in preserves the Yamanouchi property; this proves our second main theorem, 2.2.6.
