Abstract

We study in detail two row Springer fibres of even orthogonal type from an algebraic as well as topological point of view. We show that the irreducible components and their pairwise intersections are iterated $\mathbb{P}^1$-bundles. Using results of Kumar and Procesi we compute the cohomology ring with its action of the Weyl group. The main tool is a type $\operatorname D$ diagram calculus labelling the irreducible components in a convenient way which relates to a diagrammatical algebra describing the category of perverse sheaves on isotropic Grassmannians based on work of Braden. The diagram calculus generalizes Khovanov's arc algebra to the type $\operatorname D$ setting and should be seen as setting the framework for generalizing well-known connections of these algebras in type $\operatorname A$ to other types.
