I will start by revisiting formulae for the generating series of genera of symmetric products (with suitable coefficients), which hold for complex quasiprojective varieties with any kind of singularities, and which include many of the classical results in the literature as special cases. Important specializations of these results include generating series for extensions of Hodge numbers and Hirzebruch genus to the singular setting and, in particular, generating series for intersection cohomology Hodge numbers and GoreskyMacPherson intersection cohomology signatures of symmetric products of complex projective varieties. In the second part of the talk, I will describe a generating series formula for equivariant invariants of external products, which includes all of the abovementioned results as special cases. This is joint work with Joerg Schuermann.
