# Chern classes of ideal sheaf of an analytic subset

Hello,

Here's my question : Let $X$ be a Kähler manifold of dimension $n$, and $Z \subset X$ an analytic subset of codimension $k$. I have read in a paper the following result, a proof of which I cannot find:

$$c_k(\mathcal{I}_Z) = (-1)^k(k-1)![Z]$$

The form of the expression suggests using GRR, but I cannot figure out how. Does anyone know a proof for this (or at least an online reference)?

Thanks.

In Fulton's book "Intersection Theory", Theorem 15.3 and Example 15.3.1 (p. 297 of my edition) it is proven, by using GRR, that $$c_k(\mathscr{O}_Z)=(-1)^{k-1}(k-1)![Z].$$ By the short exact sequence $$0 \to \mathscr{I}_Z \to \mathscr{O}_X \to \mathscr{O}_Z \to 0$$ one has $1=c(\mathscr{O}_X)=c(\mathscr{O}_Z)c(\mathscr{I}_Z)$ and this implies $$c_k(\mathscr{I}_Z)=(-1)^k (k-1)![Z].$$
