On the nilradical of a parabolic subgroup

Part of the Progress in Mathematics book series (PM, volume 257)


We present various approaches to understanding the structure of the nilradical of parabolic subgroups in type A. In particular, we consider the complement of the open dense orbit and describe its irreducible components.
