We generalize Standard Monomial Theory (SMT) to intersections of Schubert varieties and opposite Schubert varieties; such varieties are called Richardson varieties. The aim of this article is to get closer to a geometric interpretation of the standard monomial theory as constructed in (P. Littelmann, J. Amer. Math. Soc. 11 (1998) 551–567). In fact, the construction given here is very close to the ideas in (P. Lakshmibai, C.S. Seshadri, J. Algebra 100 (1986) 462–557). Our methods show that in… Expand
Affine Weyl Groups in K-Theory and Representation Theory
We give an explicit combinatorial Chevalley-type formula for the equivariant K-theory of generalized flag varieties G/P which is a direct generalization of the classical Chevalley formula. OurExpand
Projections of Richardson Varieties

Standard monomial theory and toric degenerations of Richardson varieties in flag varieties
We study standard monomial bases for Richardson varieties inside the flag variety. In general, writing down a standard monomial basis for a Richardson variety can be challenging, as it involvesExpand

Positroid varieties: juggling and geometry
Abstract While the intersection of the Grassmannian Bruhat decompositions for all coordinate flags is an intractable mess, it turns out that the intersection of only the cyclic shifts of one BruhatExpand
Torus quotients of Richardson varieties
ABSTRACT In this paper, for any simple, simply connected algebraic group G of type A and for any maximal parabolic subgroup P of G, we provide a criterion for a Richardson variety in G∕P to admitExpand


Contracting modules and standard monomial theory for symmetrizable Kac-Moody algebras
Let G be a reductive algebraic group defined over an algebraically closed field k. We fix a Borel subgroup B, and for a dominant weight λ let Lλ be the associated line bundle on the generalized flagExpand
T-equivariant K-theory of generalized flag varieties
Abstract Let G be a Kac—Moody group with Borel subgroup B and compact maximal torus T. Analogous to Kostant and Kumar [Kostant, B. & Kumar, S. (1986) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 83, 1543-1545], weExpand
A Pieri-Chevalley formula for K(G/B)

Positivity of some intersections in K0(G/B)☆
Abstract Let G be a reductive group. Each Schubert subvariety S w of the flag variety G / B determines a class [ S w ] of its Grothendieck group K 0 ( G / B ). Indeed the set of all these classes,Expand
