POISSON STRUCTURES ON AFFINE SPACES AND FLAG VARIETIES. II. GENERAL CASE
 

Summary: POISSON STRUCTURES ON AFFINE SPACES
AND FLAG VARIETIES. II. GENERAL CASE

Abstract. The standard Poisson structures on the flag varieties G/P of a complex reductive
algebraic group G are investigated. It is shown that the orbits of symplectic leaves in G/P
under a fixed maximal torus of G are smooth irreducible locally closed subvarieties of G/P ,
isomorphic to intersections of dual Schubert cells in the full flag variety G/B of G, and
their Zariski closures are explicitly computed. Two different proofs of the former result are
presented. The first is in the framework of Poisson homogeneous spaces and the second
one uses an idea of weak splittings of surjective Poisson submersions, based on the notion
of Poisson­Dirac submanifolds. For a parabolic subgroup P with abelian unipotent radical
(in which case G/P is a Hermitian symmetric space of compact type), it is shown that all
orbits of the standard Levi factor L of P on G/P are complete Poisson subvarieties which
are quotients of L, equipped with the standard Poisson structure. Moreover, it is proved that
the Poisson structure on G/P vanishes at all special base points for the L-orbits on G/P
constructed by Richardson, Ršohrle, and Steinberg.
Introduction
