A congruence modulo four for real Schubert calculus with isotropic flags
We previously obtained a congruence modulo four for the number of real solutions to many Schubert problems on a square Grassmannian given by osculating flags. Here, we consider Schubert problems given by more general isotropic flags, and prove this congruence modulo four for the largest class of Schubert problems that could be expected to exhibit this congruence.

Product Ranks of the $3\times 3$ Determinant and Permanent
We show that the product rank of the $3 \times 3$ determinant $\det_3$ is $5$, and the product rank of the $3 \times 3$ permanent $\operatorname{perm}_3$ is $4$. As a corollary, we obtain that the tensor rank of $\det_3$ is $5$ and the tensor rank of $\operatorname{perm}_3$ is $4$. We show moreover that the border product rank of $\operatorname{perm}_n$ is larger than $n$ for any $n\geq 3$.

The Equivariant Cohomology Rings of Peterson Varieties in All Lie Types
Let $G$ be a complex semisimple linear algebraic group and let $Pet$ be the associated Peterson variety in the flag variety $G/B$. The main theorem of this note gives an efficient presentation of the equivariant cohomology ring $H^*_S(Pet)$ of the Peterson variety as a quotient of a polynomial ring by an ideal $J$ generated by quadratic polynomials, in the spirit of the Borel presentation of the cohomology of the flag variety. Here the group $S \cong \mathbb{C}^*$ is a certain subgroup of a maximal torus $T$ of $G$. Our description of the ideal $J$ uses the Cartan matrix and is uniform across Lie types. In our arguments we use the Monk formula and Giambelli formula for the equivariant cohomology rings of Peterson varieties for all Lie types, as obtained in the work of Drellich. Our result generalizes a previous theorem of Fukukawa-Harada-Masuda, which was only for Lie type $A$.

Schubert Calculus on a Grassmann Algebra
The ({\em classical}, {\em small quantum}, {\em equivariant}) cohomology ring of the grassmannian $G(k,n)$ is generated by certain derivations operating on an exterior algebra of a free module of rank $n$ ( Schubert calculus on a Grassmann algebra). Our main result gives, in a unified way, a presentation of all such cohomology rings in terms of generators and relations. Using results of Laksov and Thorup, it also provides a presentation of the universal factorization algebra of a monic polynomial of degree $n$ into the product of two monic polynomials, one of degree $k$.

Very Ample Linear Systems on Blowings-Up at General Points of Projective Spaces
Let $\mathbf{P}^n$ be the $n$-dimensional projective space over some algebraically closed field $k$ of characteristic $0$. For an integer $t\geq 3$ consider the invertible sheaf $O(t)$ on $\mathbf{P}^n$ (Serre twist of the structure sheaf). Let $N = \binom{t+n}{n}$, the dimension of the space of global sections of $O(t)$, and let $k$ be an integer satisfying $0\leq k\leq N - (2n+2)$. Let $P_1,\dots,P_k$ be general points on $\mathbf{P}^n$ and let $\pi \colon X \to \mathbf{P}^n$ be the blowing-up of $\mathbf{P}^n$ at those points. Let $E_i = \pi^{-1} (P_i)$ with $1\leq i\leq k$ be the exceptional divisor. Then $M = \pi^* \bigl( O(t) \bigr) \otimes O_X (-E_1 - \cdots -E_k)$ is a very ample invertible sheaf on $X$.
