The signature of generalized flag manifolds and applications
Let G be a linear algebraic group over ℂ and P be a parabolic subgroup. We determine the signatures of the flag manifold G/P. As an application, we prove that the nonsingular hypersurfaces of degree 2 in ℂPn are prime if n satisfies certain conditions.
