Bioriented flags and resolutions of Schubert varieties. (arXiv:1810.05604v1 [math.AG])

We use bi-oriented incidence relations in order to construct a Kempf-Laksov type resolution for any Schubert variety of the complete flag manifold but also an embedded resolution for any Schubert variety in the Grassmannian. These constructions are alternatives to the celebrated Bott-Samelson resolutions. The second process led to the introduction of singular flag varieties, algebro-geometric objects that interpolate between the standard flag manifolds and products of Grassmannians, but which are singular in general. The surprising simple desingularization of a particular singular flag variety produces an embedded resolution of the Schubert variety within the Grassmannian. 查看全文>>
