Let $X$ be a projective complex algebraic variety of dimension $d.$ Does it make sense to ask if properties like
$$
(x,y)=(-1)^i(y,x)
$$

### Local intersection cohomology

Let $X$ be a variety and $p\in X$ a point. Let $IC_X$ be the intersection cohomology sheaf, and let $IC_{X,p}$ be its stalk at $p$. Let $IH^*_p(X) := H^{*-\dim X}(IC_{X,p})$ be the local ...

### The signature of a mapping torus

Consider a manifold $M$ of dimension $4k + 2$, $k$ an integer. Pick a diffeomorphism $\phi$ of $M$ and construct the mapping torus $T$ of $\phi$. Suppose that there is a $4k+4$ dimensional manifold ...
