Mini-course “Schubert Calculus"

In the morning of September 23, 2019, the Mini-course "Schubert Calculus" opened at the Vietnam Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics, with the lectures of Professor Takeshi Ikeda from the Okayama University of Sciences, Japan and Dr. Dang Tuan Hiep from the Da Lat University, Vietnam.


The aim of this course is to introduce some fundamental methods, research directions and recent developments in Schubert Calculus and some related topics. The main content of the course focuses on the algebraic and combinatorial aspects of Schubert Calculus. Some topics related to the theory of symmetric polynomials and geometric representation theory will also be covered in this course.


Schubert Calculus is a branch of algebraic geometry introduced in the nineteenth century by Hermann Schubert, in order to solve various counting problems of projective geometry (part of enumerative geometry). These problems are solved by studying both algebraic geometry and algebraic topology of Grassmann varieties. This field also has important connections to algebraic combinatorics and representation theory.


The course held in two days, September 23-24, 2019, attracting the participation of nearly 20 people from universities and research institutes throughout the country, including students and graduate students and even experienced mathematicians.
