### Mirror Symmetry for Homogeneous Spaces other than Flag Manifolds

Mirror symmetry is (reasonably) well understood for the general flag manifolds, due to the work of Kim, Givental, Rietsch, and others. Do there exist other homogeneous spaces for which mirror symmetry ...

### Purity and six operations?

The six operations $f_!,f^!,f_*,f^*,\otimes,\mathcal Hom$ have the property that they preserve estimates on weights in one direction.
For $f_!,f^!,f_*,f^*$ I can see, that they don't preserve purity ...

### Intermediate quotient for a Hermitian Symmetric Spaces of $Sp(n)$

We know that $U(N)$ can be embedded into $SU(n+1)$ and that the quotient is isomorphic to complex projective space:
