### Schubert varieties and Young diagrams

In his book Young Tableaux, Fulton asserts, in Exercise 9.4.18 on p. 152, that the Schubert variety $\Omega_{\lambda}$ is defined by the conditions $\text{dim}(V \cap F_{n+i- \lambda_{i}}) \geq i$ for ...

### Parametrization of Schubert varieties in isotropic Grassmannians by partitions

Let $X=\mathbb{G}_Q(l,p)$ be the isotropic Grassmannian, where $l\leq p-2$. Let $q=p-l$. Let $W^P$ be the set of minimal length representatives. Let $\tilde{\mathcal{Q}}(l,p)$ be the set of partition ...

### Is the upper boundary of a Schubert variety Cartier?

On $G/B$, the divisor $\bigcup_\alpha X_{r_\alpha}$ is Cartier (where $X_w := \overline{B_- w B}/B$, and $\alpha$ varies over simple roots), not least because $G/B$ is smooth.
Is the same true for ...

### Are Schubert varieties for Kac-Moody groups cut out by linear equations?

Let $G$ be a reductive group, and let $X$ be a partial flag variety for $G$. Then it is known that for any projective embedding of $X$, that the equations scheme-theoretically cutting out a Schubert ...

### How to make Schubert calculus into a Hopf (actually a PCH) algbera?

The parallels between the formulas in Schubert calculus and in the theory of the representations of symmetric groups (par Geissinger-Zelevinsky) are so apparent (e.g. Giambelli formula), that one must ...

### “Degree” of a Fano Scheme of a projective variety

Consider subschemes $F$ of the Grassmannian $\mathbb{G}(k,n)$ satisfying the condition that each point of $\mathbb{P}^n$ is contained in only finitely many of the $k$-planes in $F$. Does this give us ...
