Let G be a reductive group satisfying the standard hypotheses, with Lie algebra g. For each nilpotent orbit O 0 in a Levi subalgebra g 0 we can consider the induced orbit O defined by Lusztig and Spaltenstein. We observe that there is a natural closed morphism of relative dimension zero from the Springer fibre over a point of O 0 to the Springer fibre over O, which induces an injection on the level of irreducible components. When G = GL N the components of Springer fibres were classified by Spaltenstein using standard tableaux. Our main result explains how the Lusztig–Spaltenstein map of Springer fibres can be described combinatorially, using a new associative composition rule for standard tableaux which we call stacking.
