I want to know what are the holomorphic automorphisms of a Grassmannian. Can someone tell me this?

5$\begingroup$ It probably would have been a good idea to quote the paper by Wei-Liang Chow, On the geometry of algebraic homogeneous spaces, Ann. of Math. 50 (1949), 32–67, since that is where the original argument is made. $\endgroup$– Robert BryantJul 1, 2014 at 16:17

Automorphisms of Grassmannians, Michael J. Cowen (1989).
$\begingroup$ What is the dual map? $\endgroup$– MostafaJul 1, 2014 at 9:44
$\begingroup$ @Mostafa -- see section 2 of Cowen's paper for the construction of the dual map. $\endgroup$ Jul 1, 2014 at 9:51
6$\begingroup$ Demazure also gave a complete characterization of automorphism groups of generalized Grassmannians $G/P$, "Automorphismes et deformations des varietes de Borel", Invent. Math. 1977. Essentially, the automorphism group of $G/P$ is generated by $G$ (adjoint form) together with certain automorphisms of the Dynkin diagram. The above is a special case, since $Gr(k,n) = PGL_n/P$. $\endgroup$ Jul 1, 2014 at 14:02
