The author extends Demazure's character formula to any Kac-Moody algebra (not necessarily symmetrizable). From this, using an argument of G. Heckman, he gets the Weyl character formula. Underlying these results, there is the identification of the characters with some Euler-Poincaré characteristic dimensions and the proof of vanishing theorems for the cohomology of semi-ample line bundles over the Schubert varieties. This machinery also allows him to prove a generalization of the Bott-Borel- Weyl theorem and Kempf's theorem, as well as some properties of the Schubert varieties. (Zentralblatt)
