Title: Enumeration problems about reduced words

Abstract: The reduced words of a Coxeter group element are fundamental to understanding the group's structure and defining such objects as the Bruhat order on the group. These words, and the Coxeter relations connecting them, lead to a range of enumerative problems. Some of these problems were answered many years ago, others only more recently, and still others remain open.
