Part of the Progress in Mathematics book series (PM, volume 182)


The study of Schubert varieties arising out of 19th century classical projective geometry took on a more modern treatment with the work of Ehresmann, then Chevalley, and later Bernstein, Gelfand, Gelfand and Demazure. Schubert varieties are now some of the best understood examples of complex projective varieties in the literature. Therefore, they play an important role in current mathematical research. Outside of mathematics, their applications appear in physics [85] and computer graphics [154, 153].
