On the Chern classes of singular varieties
ESB 4133
Thu 18 Sep 2014, 2:15pm-3:15pm


Chern classes of complex manifolds play a key role in geometry and topology. In this talk we shall discuss how these classes extend to singular varieties. In fact there are various possible extensions, depending on which properties of Chern classes you want to preserve. This is closely related to asking who plays the role of the tangent bundle at the singular points (where there is no tangent bundle).
