Springer fiber components in the two columns case for types A and D are normal
Bulletin de la Société Mathématique de France, Volume 140 (2012) no. 3, p. 309-333

We study the singularities of the irreducible components of the Springer fiber over a nilpotent element N with N 2 =0 in a Lie algebra of type A or D (the so-called two columns case). We use Frobenius splitting techniques to prove that these irreducible components are normal, Cohen-Macaulay, and have rational singularities.
