The Prism tableau model for Schubert polynomials

Anna Weigandt, Alexander Yong

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Schubert polynomials lift the Schur basis of symmetric polynomials into a basis for Z[x1,x2,…]. We suggest the prism tableau model for these polynomials. A novel aspect of this alternative to earlier results is that it directly invokes semistandard tableaux; it does so as part of a colored tableau amalgam. In the Grassmannian case, a prism tableau with colors ignored is a semistandard Young tableau. Our arguments are developed from the Gröbner geometry of matrix Schubert varieties.
