Description:
This book concerns the study of singular spaces using techniques from a variety of areas of geometry and topology and interactions among them. It contains more than a dozen expository papers on topics ranging from intersection homology, L2 cohomology and differential operators, to the topology of algebraic varieties, signatures and characteristic classes, mixed Hodge theory, and elliptic genera of singular complex and real agebraic varieties.
