Moment Polytopes of Projective G-Varieties and Tensor Products of Symmetric Group Representations
Fachbereich Mathematik und Statistik, Universitšt Konstanz, 78457 Konstanz, Germany
We present a new description of the moment polytope associated with a complex projective variety acted on by a reductive group. We apply this to give a short proof of certain inequalities due to Manivel and Strassen concerning the decomposition of (inner) tensor products of irreducible representations of the symmetric group, and to exhibit, in a concrete example, a complete system of inequalities.
