General isotropic flags are general (for Grassmannian Schubert calculus) Academic Article uri icon


  • We show that general isotropic flags for odd-orthogonal and symplectic groups are general for Schubert calculus on the classical Grassmannian in that Schubert varieties defined by such flags meet transversally. This strengthens a result of Belkale and Kumar.
