  title={Standard Monomial Theory and applications},
  author={Venkatramani Lakshmibai and Peter Littelmann and Peter M. Magyar},
In these notes, we explain how one can construct Standard Monomial Theory for reductive algebraic groups by using the path models of their representations and quantum groups at a root of unity. As applications, we obtain a combinatorial proof of the Demazure character formula and representation theoretic proofs of geometrical properties of Schubert varieties, such as normality, vanishing theorems, ideal theory and so on. Further applications of Standard Monomial Theory are made to prove… Expand
Standard monomial theory for flag algebras of GL(n) and Sp(2n)
Let G be the general linear group or the symplectic group over the complex numbers, and U be its maximal unipotent subgroup. We study standard monomial theory for the ring of regular functions onExpand
Affine Weyl Groups in K-Theory and Representation Theory

Standard Paths and Standard Monomials Fixed by a Diagram Automorphism
Abstract We show that the standard paths and the standard monomials fixed by a diagram automorphism for a Kac–Moody algebra g can be identified with the standard paths and the standard monomials forExpand
Pieri algebras and Hibi algebras in representation theory
A class of algebras that unify a variety of calculations in the representation theory of classical groups is discussed. Because of their relation to the classical Pieri Rule, these algebras areExpand
Richardson varieties and equivariant K-theory
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 getExpand

The aim of this article is to give an introduction to the theory of path models of representations and their associated bases. The starting point for the theory was a series of articles in whichExpand
The ring of sections of a complete symmetric variety
We study the ring of sections A(X) of a complete symmetric variety X, that is of the wonderful completion of G/H where G is an adjoint semisimple group and H is the fixed subgroup for an involutorialExpand
Equations Defining Symmetric Varieties and Affine
Suppose σ be a simple involution of a semisimple algebraic group G, and suppose H is the subgroup of G of points fixed by σ . If the restricted root system is of type A, C, or BC and G is simplyExpand
LS algebras and application to Schubert varieties
In this paper we introduce LS algebras. We study their general properties and apply these results to Schubert varieties. Our main achievement is that any Schubert variety admits a flat deformation toExpand
Deformation and Cohen-Macaulayness of the multicone over the flag variety
Abstract. A general theory of LS algebras over a multiposet is developed. As a main result, the existence of a flat deformation to discrete algebras is obtained. This is applied to the multicone overExpand


Chern class formulas for quiver varieties
In this paper a formula is proved for the general degeneracy locus associated to an oriented quiver of type A_n. Given a finite sequence of vector bundles with maps between them, these loci areExpand
Introduction to Quantum Groups
We give an elementary introduction to the theory of algebraic and topological quantum groups (in the spirit of S. L. Woronowicz). In particular, we recall the basic facts from Hopf (*-) algebraExpand
Standard Monomial Theory for Bott-Samelson Varieties of GL(n)

Standard Monomial Theory for Bott–Samelson Varieties
Bott–Samelson varieties are an important tool in geometric representation theory [1, 3, 10, 25]. They were originally defined as desingularizations of Schubert varieties and share many of theExpand
