# Lower bounds for numbers of real solutions in problems of Schubert calculus

@article{Mukhin2014LowerBF, title={Lower bounds for numbers of real solutions in problems of Schubert calculus}, author={Evgeny Mukhin and Vitaly O. Tarasov}, journal={Acta Mathematica}, year={2014}, volume={217}, pages={177-193} }

We give lower bounds for the numbers of real solutions in problems appearing in Schubert calculus in the Grassmannian $${\mathop{\rm Gr}(n,d)}$$Gr(n,d) related to osculating flags. It is known that such solutions are related to Bethe vectors in the Gaudin model associated to $${\mathop{\rm gl}_n}$$gln. The Gaudin Hamiltonians are self-adjoint with respect to a non-degenerate indefinite Hermitian form. Our bound comes from the computation of the signature of that form.
