Synopsis

Description

For the general theory on Chow rings of Grassmannians, see e.g. the book 3264 & All That - Intersection Theory in Algebraic Geometry, by D. Eisenbud and J. Harris.

i1 : G = GG(ZZ/33331,2,5);

o1 : ProjectiveVariety, GG(2,5)
i2 : C = schubertCycle({3,2,1},G);

o2 : ProjectiveVariety, threefold in PP^19 (subvariety of codimension 6 in G)
i3 : cycleClass C

o3 = s

o3 : ZZ[s     , s     , s     ]
