*Jacques Gasqui; Hubert Goldschmidt*

A publication of the Société Mathématique de France

The authors study the real Grassmannian \(G^\mathbb{R}_{n,n}\) of \(n\)-planes in \(\mathbb{R}^{2n}\), with \(n\ge 3\), and its reduced space. The latter is the irreducible symmetric space \(\bar G^\mathbb{R}_{n,n}\), which is the quotient of the space \(G^\mathbb{R}_{n,n}\) under the action of its isometry which sends a \(n\)-plane} into its orthogonal complement. One of the main results of this monograph asserts that the irreducible symmetric space \(\bar G^\mathbb{R}_{3,3}\) possesses non-trivial infinitesimal isospectral deformations; it provides the first example of an irreducible reduced symmetric space which admits such deformations. The authors also give a criterion for the exactness of a form of degree one on \(\bar G^\mathbb{R}_{n,n}\) in terms of a Radon transform.
