We find an upper bound for the Gromov width of coadjoint orbits of compact Lie groups with respect to the Kostant-Kirillov-Souriau symplectic form by computing certain Gromov-Witten invariants. The approach presented here is closely related to the one used by Gromov in his celebrated non-squeezing theorem.
Keywords: Gromov-Witten invariants, Gromov's width, coadjoint orbits, Schubert varieties.
