The lectures cover perverse sheaves and the topology of algebraic varieties, an introduction to affine Grassmannians
and the geometric Satake equivalence, Springer theories and orbital integrals, perverse sheaves and fundamental lemmas, K-theory computations in enumerative geometry, and perverse sheaves on instanton moduli spaces.

It is also worth mentioning that in  Buch obtained the Littlewood-Richardson rule for the structure constants of Grothendieck polynomials [G.sub.[lambda]](x), and hence the Schubert structure constants of the K-theory of Grassmannians
(see also the paper  by Ikeda-Shimazaki for another proof) For the equivariant K-theory of Grassmannians
(or equivalently for [G.sub.[lambda]](x|b)), the structure constants were determined by Pechenik and Yong in  by introducing a new combinatorial object called genomic tableaux.

For example, from the usual representation of SLn(R) on C", one obtains actions on the parameter spaces of linear subspaces, that is, Grassmannians
[Gr.sub.K]([C.sup.n]) of k-dimensional subspaces of [C.sup.n], flag manifolds [F.sub.1:::k]([C.sup.n]) and so on.
Drawn from lectures at a program held in 1999 in Taiwan's National Center for Theoretical Sciences, the topics include isothermic surfaces in terms of conformal geometry, Clifford algebras and integrable systems, introductions to homological geometry, isoparametric submanifolds and a Chevalley-type restriction theorem, a gauge-theoretic approach to harmonic maps and subspaces in Moduli spaces, and Schrodinger flows on Grassmannians
This is the first contribution to the rigidity question for an important class of irreducible Hermitian symmetric spaces, the complex Grassmannians
. Indeed, [Q.sub.4] may be identified with the Grassmannian
of complex 2-planes in [C.sup.4].
