Schubert Induction

  title={Schubert Induction},
  author={Ravi Vakil},
We describe a Schubert induction theorem, a tool for analyzing intersections on a Grassmannian over an arbitrary base ring. The key ingredient in the proof is the Geometric Littlewood-Richardson rule of [V2]. Schubert problems are among the most classical problems in enumerative geometry of continuing interest. As an application of Schubert induction, we address several longstanding natural questions related to Schubert problems, including: the “reality” of solutions; effective numerical… CONTINUE READING
