    • Abstract


      LetG=Sl(n) andB, the Borel subgroup ofG consisting of upper triangular matrices. LetwSn andX(w)=BwB(modB), the associated Schubert variety inG/B. In this paper, we give a geometric criterion for the smoothness ofX(w). This criterion admits a neat combinatorial description in terms of the permutationw.
