Kresch, A (1999). Canonical rational equivalence of intersections of divisors. Inventiones Mathematicae, 136(3):483-496.
We consider the operation of intersecting with a locally principal Cartier divisor (i.e., a Cartier divisor which is principal on some neighborhood of its support). We describe this operation explicitly on the level of cycles and rational equivalences and as a corollary obtain a formula for rational equivalence between intersections of two locally principal Cartier divisors. Such canonical rational equivalence applies quite naturally to the setting of algebraic stacks. We present two applications: (i) a simplification of the development of Fulton-MacPherson-style intersection theory on Deligne-Mumford stacks, and (ii) invariance of a key rational equivalence under a certain group action (which is used in developing the theory of virtual fundamental classes via intrinsic normal cones).
