International audience We construct the affine version of the Fomin-Kirillov algebra, called the affine FK algebra, to investigatethe combinatorics of affine Schubert calculus for typeA. We introduce Murnaghan-Nakayama elements and Dunklelements in the affine FK algebra. We show that they are commutative as Bruhat operators, and the commutativealgebra generated by these operators is isomorphic to the cohomology of the affine flag variety. As a byproduct, weobtain Murnaghan-Nakayama rules…

On the coproduct in affine Schubert calculus
The cohomology of the affine flag variety of a complex reductive group is a comodule over the cohomology of the affine Grassmannian. We give positive formulae for the coproduct of an affine Schubert

In this tutorial, we provide an overview of many of the established combinatorial and algebraic tools of Schubert calculus, the modern area of enumerative geometry that encapsulates a wide variety of
Back stable Schubert calculus
We study the back stable Schubert calculus of the infinite flag variety. Our main results are: – a formula for back stable (double) Schubert classes expressing them in terms of a symmetric function
Affine Schubert calculus and double coinvariants
We first define an action of the double coinvariant algebra $DR_n$ on the homology of the affine flag variety $\widetilde{Fl}_n$ in type $A$, and use affine Schubert calculus to prove that it


Pieri rule for the affine flag variety
Quadratic Algebras, Dunkl Elements, and Schubert Calculus
We suggest a new combinatorial construction for the cohomology ring of the ag manifold. The degree 2 commutation relations satissed by the divided diierence operators corresponding to positive roots
Affine Nil-Hecke Algebras and Braided Differential Structure on Affine Weyl Groups
We construct a model of the affine nil-Hecke algebra as a subalgebra of the Nichols-Woronowicz algebra associated to a Yetter-Drinfeld module over the affine Weyl group. We also discuss the Peterson
We prove that structure constants related to Hecke algebras at roots of unity are special cases of k-Littlewood-Richardson coefficients associated to a product of k-Schur functions. As a consequence,
Affine Insertion and Pieri Rules for the Affine Grassmannian
We study combinatorial aspects of the Schubert calculus of the affine Grassmannian Gr associated with SL(n,C). Our main results are: 1) Pieri rules for the Schubert bases of H^*(Gr) and H_*(Gr),
Crystal approach to affine Schubert calculus
Author(s): Morse, Jennifer; Schilling, Anne | Abstract: We apply crystal theory to affine Schubert calculus, Gromov-Witten invariants for the complete flag manifold, and the positroid stratification
On some noncommutative algebras related with K-theory of flag varieties, I
For any Lie algebra of classical type or type G2 we define a K-theoretic analog of Dunkl’s elements, the so-called truncated Ruijsenaars-Schneider-Macdonald elements, RSM -elements for short, in the
Equivariant $K$-theory of affine flag manifolds and affine Grothendieck polynomials
We study the equivariant K-group of the affine flag manifold with respect to the Borel group action. We prove that the structure sheaf of the (infinite-dimensional) Schubert variety in the K-group is
Schur Times Schubert via the Fomin-Kirillov Algebra
An algebro-combinatorial proof of the nonnegativity of the Gromov-Witten invariants in these cases is provided, and combinatorial expressions for these coefficients are presented.
