Abstract: © 2017 Elsevier Inc.Period domains, the classifying spaces for (pure, polarized) Hodge structures, and more generally Mumford–Tate domains, arise as open GRorbits in flag varieties G/P. We investigate Hodgetheoretic aspects of the geometry and representation theory associated with these flag varieties. In particular, we relate the Griffiths–Yukawa coupling to the variety of lines on G/P (under a minimal homogeneous embedding), construct a large class of polarized GRorbits in G/P, and compute the associated Hodgetheoretic boundary components. An emphasis is placed throughout on adjoint flag varieties and the corresponding families of Hodge structures of levels two and four.
