It is the object of this dissertation to give a foundation of enumerative geometry, in particular the symbolical calculus of Schubert, with the aid of topological methods. Van der Waerden had noticed that Lefschetz's theory of intersection numbers gives a rigorous definition of the fundamental notion "multiplicity" in algebraic geometry. Somewhat earlier Lefschetz himself had shown how topological considerations may be used to give the solution of difficult algebraic geometric problems. Zie: Summary
