On tangential varieties of rational homogeneous varieties Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The sphericality of tangential varieties of rational homogeneous varieties is determined. The homogeneous coordinate rings and rings of covariants of the tangential varieties of homogenously embedded compact Hermitian symmetric spaces (CHSS) are determined. Bounds on the degrees of generators of the ideals of tangential varieties of CHSS are given, and more explicit information is obtained about the ideals in certain cases. © 2007 London Mathematical Society.
