Title: Schubert Calculus Part I: Grassmanians and Schubert Classes
Abstract: This talk will be the first in a two part series giving a broad overview of Schubert Calculus, an area of study that uses the combinatorics of symmetric polynomials to get results about enumerative algebraic geometry questions with finite answers. In this part we will discuss the translation of such questions into the study of Grassmanians, in particular their decomposition into Schubert varieties.
