The aim of this paper is to study the behavior of intersection homology genera and their associated characteristic classes under morphisms of projective algebraic varieties. We obtain formulae that relate (parametrized families of) global invariants of a projective variety X to such invariants of singularities of proper algebraic maps defined on X. Such formulae severely constrain, both topologically and analytically, the singularities of complex maps, even between smooth varieties. Similar results were announced by the first and third author in [10, 22].

In this paper, for a possibly singular complex variety X, generating functions of total orbifold Chern homology classes of the symmetric products S n X are given. Those are very natural “class versions” of known generating function formulae of (generalized) orbifold Euler characteristics of S n X. The classes work covariantly for proper morphisms. We state the result more generally. Let G be a finite group and Gn the wreath product G ∼ Sn. For a Gvariety X and a group A, we give a “DeyWohlfahrt type formula ” for equivariant ChernSchwartzMacPherson classes associated to Gnrepresentations of A (Theorem 1.1 and 1.2). In particular, if X is a point, this recovers a known exponential formula for counting numbers Hom(A,Gn).
Motivic Milnor classes
, 2009
"... The Milnor class is a generalization of the Milnor number, defined as the difference (up to sign) of Chern–Schwartz–MacPherson’s class and Fulton–Johnson’s canonical Chern class of a local complete intersection variety in a smooth variety. In this paper we introduce a “motivic ” Grothendieck group ..."

The Milnor class is a generalization of the Milnor number, defined as the difference (up to sign) of Chern–Schwartz–MacPherson’s class and Fulton–Johnson’s canonical Chern class of a local complete intersection variety in a smooth variety. In this paper we introduce a “motivic ” Grothendieck group K Prop ℓ.c.i (V/X h − → S) and natural transformations from this Grothendieck group to the homology theory. We capture the Milnor class, more generally Hirzebruch–Milnor class, as a special value of a distinguished element under these natural transformations. We also show a Verdiertype Riemann–Roch formula for our motivic HirzebruchMilnor class. We use Fulton–MacPherson’s bivariant theory and the motivic Hirzebruch class.
A Universal Bivariant Theory and Cobordism Groups
, 2008
"... This is a survey on a universal bivariant theory MC S (X → Y), which is a prototype of a bivariant analogue of Levine–Morel’s algebraic cobordism, and its application to constructing a bivariant theory FΩ(X → Y) of cobordism groups. Before giving such a survey, we recall the genus such as signature ..."

This is a survey on a universal bivariant theory MC S (X → Y), which is a prototype of a bivariant analogue of Levine–Morel’s algebraic cobordism, and its application to constructing a bivariant theory FΩ(X → Y) of cobordism groups. Before giving such a survey, we recall the genus such as signature, which is the main important invariant defined on the cobordism group, i.e, a ring homomorphism from the cobordism group to a commutative ring with a unit. We capture the Euler–Poincaré characteristic and genera as a drastic generalization of the very natural counting finites sets.
MOTIVIC CHARACTERISTIC CLASSES

Motivic characteristic classes of possibly singular algebraic varieties are homology class versions of motivic characteristics, not classes in the socalled motivic (co) homology. This paper is a survey on them with more emphasis on capturing infinitude finitely and on the motivic nature, in other words, the scissor relation or additivity.

In 1981 W. Fulton and R. MacPherson introduced the notion of bivariant theory (BT), which is a sophisticated unification of covariant theories and contravariant theories. This is for the study of singular spaces. In 2001 M. Levine and F. Morel introduced the notion of algebraic cobordism, which is a universal oriented Borel–Moore functor with products (OBMF) of geometric type, in an attempt to understand better V. Voevodsky’s (higher) algebraic cobordism. In this paper we introduce a notion of oriented bivariant theory (OBT), a special case of which is nothing but the oriented Borel–Moore functor with products. The present paper is a first one of the series to try to understand Levine–Morel’s algebraic cobordism from a bivarianttheoretical viewpoint, and its first step is to introduce OBT as a unification of BT and OBMF.
