The study of characteristic classes of singular varieties is a current theme and has been widely used in various areas of science. The purpose of this project is to study Schwartz-MacPherson classes through the means of the Classical Singularity Theory. The central approach of the project is the use of Thom's polynomials, which will provide an appropriate set of tools for the development of issues that generalize classical enumerative problems in Singularity Theory.
