Intersection Theory V-Intersection Products

Sungwoo Nam (Illinois Math)

Abstract: In this talk, we will see the important construction of deformation to the normal cone, which is an analog of the tubular neighborhood theorem in algebraic geometry. Using this, we will define intersection product with a regular codimension d subvariety, generalizing intersection with a divisor introduced in the second talk. Time permitting, we will see how to understand the number 3264 from the intersection theory point of view.
