# The relative Hochschild-Serre spectral sequence and the Belkale-Kumar product

@article{Evens2012TheRH, title={The relative Hochschild-Serre spectral sequence and the Belkale-Kumar product}, author={Sam Evens and William Graham}, journal={Transactions of the American Mathematical Society}, year={2012}, volume={365}, pages={5833-5857} }

We consider the Belkale-Kumar cup product $\odot_t$ on $H^*(G/P)$ for a generalized flag variety $G/P$ with parameter $t \in \C^m$, where $m=\dim(H^2(G/P))$. For each $t\in \C^m$, we define an associated parabolic subgroup $P_K \supset P$. We show that the ring $(H^*(G/P), \odot_t)$ contains a graded subalgebra $A$ isomorphic to $H^*(P_K/P)$ with the usual cup product, where $P_K$ is a parabolic subgroup associated to the parameter $t$. Further, we prove that $(H^*(G/P_K), \odot_0)$ is the…
