Title:  Total positivity for the Lagrangian Grassmannian

Abstract:   The stratification of the Grassmannian by positroid varieties has a rich combinatorial theory. Positroid varieties are indexed by a number of interesting combinatorial posets, including k-Bruhat intervals and bounded affine permutations. In addition, Postnikov's boundary measurement map gives a family of parametrizations for each positroid variety; the domain of each parametrization is the space of edge weights of a weighted planar network.

In this paper, we generalize the combinatorics of positroid varieties to the Lagrangian Grassmannian, the moduli space of maximal isotropic subspaces with respect to a symplectic form.
