Hodge-Deligne polynomials of character varieties of free abelian groups
• Mathematics
• 2021
Abstract Let F F be a finite group and X X be a complex quasi-projective F F -variety. For r ∈ N r\in {\mathbb{N}} , we consider the mixed Hodge-Deligne polynomials of quotients X r / F
Local polar varieties in the geometric study of singularities
• Mathematics
• 2016
This text presents several aspects of the theory of equisingularity of complex analytic spaces from the standpoint of Whitney conditions. The goal is to describe from the geometrical, topological,
Motivic Chern classes of Schubert cells, Hecke algebras, and applications to Casselman's problem
• Mathematics
• 2019
Motivic Chern classes are elements in the K-theory of an algebraic variety $X$ depending on an extra parameter $y$. They are determined by functoriality and a normalization property for smooth $X$.

The goal of this lecture notes is to introduce to Characteristic Classes. This is an important tool of the contemporary mathematics, indispensable to work in geometry and topology, and also useful in
Topology through the centuries: Low dimensional manifolds
This note will provide a lightning tour through the centuries, concentrating on the study of manifolds of dimension 2, 3, and 4. Further comments and more technical details about many of the sections
Hilbert schemes of K3 surfaces, generalized Kummer, and cobordism classes of hyper-K\"ahler manifolds
• Mathematics
• 2021
We prove that the complex cobordism class of any hyper-Kähler manifold of dimension 2n is a unique combination with rational coefficients of classes of products of punctual Hilbert schemes of K3

J : TM ⊕ R −→ TM ⊕ R such that J = −1, where R denotes the trivial real l-plane bundle over M for some l. A stable complex structure induces an orientation, obtained as the “difference” of the
Some Fano manifolds whose Hilbert polynomial is totally reducible over $\mathbb Q$
• Mathematics
• 2022
Let (X,L) be any Fano manifold polarized by a positive multiple of its fundamental divisor H . The polynomial defining the Hilbert curve of (X,L) boils down to being the Hilbert polynomial of (X,H),
Sheaf Theory for Partial Differential Equations
In order to analyze the singularities of hyperfunction solutions of systems of partial differential equations, M. Sato introduced in 1969 the microlocalization functor and, more fundamentally, the
