# Ana-Maria Brecan : On the intersection pairing between cycles in SU(p,q)-flag domains and maximally real Schubert varieties

An SU(p, q)-flag domain is an open orbit of the real Lie group SU(p, q) acting on the complex flag manifold associated to its complexification SL(p + q, C). Any such flag domain contains certain compact complex submanifolds, called cycles, which encode much of the topological, complex geometric and repre- sentation theoretical properties of the flag domain. This talk is concerned with the description of these cycles in homology using a specific type of Schubert varieties. They are defined by the condition that the fixed point of the Borel group in question is in the closed SU(p,q)-orbit in the ambient manifold. We consider the Schubert varieties of this type which are of com- plementary dimension to the cycles. It is known that if such a variety has non-empty intersection with a certain base cycle, then it does so transversally (in finitely many points). With the goal of understanding this duality, we describe these points of intersection in terms of flags as well as in terms of fixed points of a given maximal torus. The relevant Schubert varieties are described in terms of Weyl group elements.
