Projective bundle theorem in homology theories with Chern structure

Doc. Math., J. DMV 9, 487-497 (2004)


Summary: Panin and Smirnov deduced the existence of push-forwards, along projective morphisms, in a cohomology theory with cup products, from the assumption that the theory is endowed with an extra structure called orientation. A part of their work is a proof of the Projective Bundle Theorem in cohomology based on the assumption that we have the first Chern class for line bundles. In some examples we have to consider a pair of theories, cohomology and homology, related by a cap product. It would be useful to construct transfer maps (pull-backs) along projective morphisms in homology in such a situation under similar assumptions. In this note we perform the projective bundle theorem part of this project in homology.
