I know I promised a post on modular curves, but I had to devote more time to my end of semester project. Since it’s strongly related to the topic of modular curves and I present on it tomorrow, I decided to make this post in the seminar talks category.
It’s been a few weeks, but now I’m back and today we’ll talk about the multiplication in the cohomology ring of Grassmannians. Though we won’t talk about the Littlewood-Richardson rule in its full glory, we will howver discuss the special cases of the Pieri rule and the Giambelli formula.
