Chern Classes of Splayed Intersections

Abstract

We generalize the Chern class relation for the transversal intersection of two nonsingular varieties to a relation for possibly singular varieties, under a splayedness assumption. The relation is shown to hold for both the Chern– Schwartz–MacPherson class and the Chern–Fulton class. The main tool is a formula for Segre classes of splayed subschemes. We also discuss the Chern class relation under the assumption that one of the varieties is a general very ample divisor.
