# Toric degenerations of Schubert varieties

@article{Caldero2000ToricDO, title={Toric degenerations of Schubert varieties}, author={Philippe Caldero}, journal={Transformation Groups}, year={2000}, volume={7}, pages={51-60} }

LetG be a simply connected semisimple complex algebraic group. We prove that every Schubert variety ofG has a flat degeneration into a toric variety. This provides a generalization of results of [9], [7], [6]. Our basic tool is Lusztig's canonical basis and the string parametrization of this basis.
