In topology, a branch of mathematics, **intersection homology** is an analogue of singular homology especially well-suited for the study of singular spaces, discovered by Mark Goresky and Robert MacPherson in the fall of 1974 and developed by them over the next few years.

Intersection cohomology was used to prove the Kazhdan–Lusztig conjectures and the Riemann–Hilbert correspondence. It is closely related to *L*2 cohomology.

### Famous quotes containing the word intersection:

“You can always tell a Midwestern couple in Europe because they will be standing in the middle of a busy *intersection* looking at a wind-blown map and arguing over which way is west. European cities, with their wandering streets and undisciplined alleys, drive Midwesterners practically insane.”

—Bill Bryson (b. 1951)
