Quantum cohomology of the Grassmannian and alternate Thom-Sebastiani. (English) Zbl 1151.53075
Authors’ abstract: We introduce the notion of an alternate product of Frobenius manifolds and we give, after I. Ciocan-Fontanine and the authors [Invent. Math. 171, No. 2, 301–343 (2008; Zbl 1164.14012)], an interpretation of the Frobenius manifold structure canonically attached to the quantum cohomology of \(G(r,n+1)\) in terms of alternate products. We also investigate the relationship with the alternate Thom-Sebastiani product of Laurent polynomials.
