We present a categorification of the non-crossing partitions given by crystallographic Coxeter groups. This involves a category of certain bilinear lattices, which are essentially determined by a symmetrisable generalised Cartan matrix together with a particular choice of a Coxeter element. Examples arise from Grothendieck groups of hereditary artin algebras.

Keywords: Non-crossing partition, hereditary algebra, Grothendieck group, Weyl group, Coxeter group, exceptional sequence, symmetrisable generalised Cartan matrix, perpendicular category
