In this paper we study the Brauer loop model on a strip and the associated quantum Knizhnik–Zamolodchikov (qKZ) equation. We show that the minimal degree solution of the Brauer qKZ equation with one of four dierent possible boundary conditions, gives the multidegrees of the irreducible components of generalizations of the Brauer loop scheme of [16, Knutson–Zinn-Justin ’07] with one of four kinds of symplectic-type symmetry. This is accomplished by studying these irreducible components, which are indexed by link patterns, and describing the geometric action of Brauer generators on them. We also provide recurrence relations for the multidegrees and compute the sum rules (multidegrees of the whole schemes).

Keywords: Brauer algebra, quantum Knizhnik–Zamolodchikov equation, equivariant cohomology, Loop model
