 The authors study combinatorial aspects of the Schubert calculus of the affine Grassmannian \({\rm Gr}\) associated with \(SL(n,\mathbb{C})\).Their main results are:  Pieri rules for the Schubert bases of \(H^*({\rm Gr})\) and \(H_*({\rm Gr})\), which expresses the product of a special Schubert class and an arbitrary Schubert class in terms of Schubert classes.
 A new combinatorial definition for \(k\)Schur functions, which represent the Schubert basis of \(H_*({\rm Gr})\).
 A combinatorial interpretation of the pairing \(H^*({\rm Gr})\times H_*({\rm Gr}) \rightarrow\mathbb Z\) induced by the cap product.
