In [Gr], Graham proves that the structure constants of the equivariant
cohomology ring of a flag variety are positive combinations of monomials in
the simple roots:
Theorem 1 ([Gr, Cor. 4.1]) Let X = G/B be the flag variety for a com
plex semisimple group G with maximal torus T B, and let {w H
T X  w
W} be the basis of (Binvariant) Schubert classes. Let {i} be the simple
roots which are negative on B. Then in the expansion
u · v =
w
cw
uv w,
the coefficients cw
uv are in Z0[].
Graham deduces this from a more general result about varieties with finitely
many unipotent orbits, which is proved using induction and a calculation
