9783642052040: Vector fields on Singular Varieties (Lecture Notes in Mathematics)

Many authors have questioned the use of the index of the vector field, and of the Chern classes, if the underlying space becomes singular. This book discusses their explorations within the framework of the obstruction theory and the Chern-Weil theory.

From the Back Cover:

Vector fields on manifolds play a major role in mathematics and other sciences. In particular, the Poincaré-Hopf index theorem gives rise to the theory of Chern classes, key manifold-invariants in geometry and topology.
It is natural to ask what is the ‘good’ notion of the index of a vector field, and of Chern classes, if the underlying space becomes singular. The question has been explored by several authors resulting in various answers, starting with the pioneering work of M.-H. Schwartz and R. MacPherson.
We present these notions in the framework of the obstruction theory and the Chern-Weil theory. The interplay between these two methods is one of the main features of the monograph.

Review:

From the reviews:

“This book is dedicated to the study of indices of vector fields and flows around an isolated singularity, or stationary point, in the cases where the underlying space is either a manifold or a singular variety. ... The book gives a thorough presentation of the results, old and new, related to indices of vector fields on singular varieties and is a valuable reference for both the specialist and the non-specialist.” (M. G. Soares, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2011 d)
