Divisors on the space of maps to Grassmannians

in International Mathematics Research Notices

January 2006; p ublished online January 2006 .

Journal Article. Subjects: Mathematics; Pure Mathematics. 0 words.

We study the divisor theory of the Kontsevich moduli spaces ℳ0,0(G(k,n),d) of genus-zero stable maps to the Grassmannians. We calculate the classes of several geometrically significant...
