Tensor products of tautological bundles under the Bridgeland–King–Reid–Haiman equivalence

  • Andreas Krug
Original Paper


We give a description of the image of tensor products of tautological bundles on Hilbert schemes of points on surfaces under the Bridgeland–King–Reid–Haiman equivalence. Using this, some new formulas for cohomological invariants of these bundles are obtained. In particular, we give formulas for the Euler characteristic of arbitrary tensor products on the Hilbert scheme of two points and of triple tensor products in general.
