Schubert polynomials and the Littlewood-Richardson rule. (English) Zbl 0586.20007
Using Schubert polynomials, the authors give an algorithm for expressing the product of two Schur functions as a sum of Schur functions. Their algorithm is both more general and faster than the Littlewood-Richardson rule.
