Schubert varieties form one of the most important classes of singular algebraic varieties. They are also a kind of moduli spaces. One problem is that these varieties are not easy to understand and manipulate using only their geometric nature. In this talk, we will discuss about Schubert varieties and present a way to characterize them combinatorially. In addition, we will discuss how they relate to Severi-Brauer varieties SB(d,A) and how we can use their combinatorial description to answer questions about subvarieties of SB(d,A)
