# Twisted genera of symmetric products

@article{Maxim2009TwistedGO, title={Twisted genera of symmetric products}, author={Laurenţiu Maxim and J{\"o}rg Sch{\"u}rmann}, journal={Selecta Mathematica}, year={2009}, volume={18}, pages={283-317} }

We give a new proof of formulae for the generating series of (Hodge) genera of symmetric products X(n) with coefficients, which hold for complex quasi-projective varieties X with any kind of singularities and which include many of the classical results in the literature as special cases. Important specializations of our results include generating series for extensions of Hodge numbers and Hirzebruch’s χy-genus to the singular setting and, in particular, generating series for intersection…
