Formulas for quiver varieties and Stanley symmetric functions
refreshments at 3:45pm
A quiver variety is a general type of degeneracy locus obtained by putting
arbitrary rank conditions on a sequence of vector bundles with maps
between them. Fulton and I proved a formula for the cohomology class of a
quiver variety, which expresses this class as a linear combination of
products of Schur polynomials. We have conjectured that the coefficients
in this linear combination are non-negative and given by a generalized
Littlewood-Richardson rule. I will describe this conjecture, as well as
applications of the formula to Schubert polynomials and Stanley symmetric
