    Multiplication of Schubert Polynomials.

    Friday 1st March, 12-1pm, Carslaw 373.

    Schubert polynomials may be seen as a generalisation of Schur polynomials. So one of the open problems is the finding of a rule for the multiplication, which is solved in the case of the Schur polynomials by the famous Littlewood Richardson Rule.

    I will give an algorithm for multiplying a Schubert polynomial and a Schur polynomial. The proof uses an combinatorial description of the Schubert polynomials.
