The Wronskian and its derivatives

Letterio Gatto

Abstract


This note reports on some joint work with I. Scherbak, aiming to overview a connection between generalized wronskians (of fundamental systems of solutions of linear ordinary differential equations with constant coefficients) and  the intersection theory of complex Grassmann varieties. Detailed computations  are performed in the easiest case of the intersection theory of the grassmannian of lines in projective spaces.
