Triple intersection formulas for isotropic Grassmannians

Vijay Ravikumar

Vol. 9 (2015), No. 3, 681–723

Let X be an isotropic Grassmannian of type B, C, or D. In this paper we calculate K-theoretic Pieri-type triple intersection numbers for X: that is, the sheaf Euler characteristic of the triple intersection of two arbitrary Schubert varieties and a special Schubert variety in general position. We do this by determining explicit equations for the projected Richardson variety corresponding to the two arbitrary Schubert varieties, and show that it is a complete intersection in projective space. The K-theoretic Pieri coefficients are alternating sums of these triple intersection numbers, and we hope they will lead to positive Pieri formulas for isotropic Grassmannians.
