Schubert Variety

A class of subvarieties of the Grassmannian G(n,m,K). Given m integers 1<=a_1<...<a_m<=n, the Schubert variety Omega(a_1,...,a_m) is the set of points of G(n,m,K) representing the m-dimensional subspaces W of K^n such that, for all i=1,...,m,

 dim_K(W intersection <e_(n-a_i+1),...,e_n>)>=i.

It is a projective algebraic variety of dimension
