Jean-Paul Brasselet

Full-text: Open access


The paper presents some recent results obtained by singularity researchers in the area of characteristic classes, in fact a promenade along the Japanese singularity road. Main subjects concern characteristic classes of singular varieties, equivariant Chern classes, bivariant Chern classes and motivic characteristic classes.
