Root-theoretic young diagrams, schubert calculus and adjoint varieties

Dominic Searles, Alexander Yong

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Root-theoretic Young diagrams are a conceptual framework to discuss existence of a root-system uniform and manifestly nonnegative combinatorial rule for Schubert calculus. Our main results use them to obtain formulas for (co)adjoint varieties of classical Lie type. This case is the simplest after the previously solved (co)minuscule family. Yet our formulas possess both uniform and non-uniform features.
