J. Math. Sci., New York 100, No. 3, 2254-2268 (2000); translation from Zalgaller, V. A. (ed.) et al., Geometry and topology. 2. Work collection. Sankt-Peterburg: Matematicheskij Institut Im. V. A. Steklova, Sankt-Peterburgskoe Otdelenie, RAN, Zap. Nauchn. Semin. POMI. 246, 108-129 (1997).
In a previous paper [S. E. Kozlov, ibid., 84-107 (1997; Zbl 0918.53008), see the preceding review], the author established a Plücker model for the Grassmannian manifolds \(G^+_{p,n}\). In the paper under review, stationary angles between (oriented or non-oriented) planes are introduced. The diameter and the injectivity radius of \(G^+_{p,n}\) are calculated. Finally, the closure of geodesics in \(G^+_{p,n}\) is determined.
