The Goresky-MacPherson formula for toric arrangements

Speaker : Priyavrat Deshpande, CMI Chennai


Abstract :

An arrangement of subspaces is a finite collection of subspaces in an Euclidean space. As an application of stratified Morse theory, Goresky and MacPherson gave a formula for the cohomology of the complement of a subspace arrangement in terms of the homology of lower intervals of an associated semi-lattice. In this talk I will consider toric arrangements, i.e., finite collection of codimension 1 subtori in a torus. Using Vassiliev's simplicial resolution and a spectral sequence argument prove the analogue of Goresky-MacPherson formula in this context.
