Intersection Products

Part of the Ergebnisse der Mathematik und ihrer Grenzgebiete book series (MATHE3, volume 2)


Given a regular imbedding i: XY of codimension d, a k-dimensional variety V, and a morphism f: VY, an intersection product X · V is constructed in A kd (W), W = f −1 (X). Although the case of primary interest is when f is a closed imbedding, so W = XV, there is significant benefit in allowing general morphisms f. Let g: WX be the induced morphism. The normal cone C W V to W in V is a closed subcone of g* N X Y, of pure dimension k. We define X · V to be the result of intersecting the k-cycle [C W V] by the zero-section of g* N X Y:
$$X\cdot V=s^{*}[C_{W}\,V]$$
where s: Wg* N X Y is the zero-section, and s* is the Gysin map constructed in Chapter 3. Alternatively X · V is the (kd)-dimensional component of the class
$$c\left ( g^{*}N_{X}Y \right)\cap s\left ( W,V \right)$$
where s (W, V) is the Segre class of W in V.
