About this book

This volume consists of ten articles which provide an in-depth and reader-friendly survey of some of the foundational aspects of singularity theory. Authored by world experts, the various contributions deal with both classical material and modern developments, covering a wide range of topics which are linked to each other in fundamental ways.

Singularities are ubiquitous in mathematics and science in general. Singularity theory interacts energetically with the rest of mathematics, acting as a crucible where different types of mathematical problems interact, surprising connections are born and simple questions lead to ideas which resonate in other parts of the subject.

This is the first volume in a series which aims to provide an accessible account of the state-of-the-art of the subject, its frontiers, and its interactions with other areas of research.

The book is addressed to graduate students and newcomers to the theory, as well as to specialists who can use it as a guidebook.

About the authors

José Luis Cisneros-Molina (PhD, University of Warwick 1999) is a full-time researcher at the Mathematics Institute of the National Autonomous University of Mexico. His research interests are in Algebraic and Differential Topology, Differential Geometry and Singularity Theory, with a particular focus on generalizations of Milnor Fibrations for complex and real analytic maps.

Dũng Tráng Lê (PhD, University of Paris 1969) is an Emeritus Professor at Aix-Marseille University. Previously he was Professor at the Universities of Paris VII (1975—1999)  and Marseille, and was head of Mathematics at the ICTP at Trieste. One of the founders of modern Singularity Theory, he has made numerous contributions to morsification, the topology of complex singularities, polar varieties, carousels, among other topics.

José Seade (DPhil, University of Oxford 1980) is a full-time researcher at the Mathematics Institute of the National Autonomous University of Mexico. His research is in the theory of indices of vector fields and Chern classes for singular varieties, with applications to foliations, and Milnor’s fibration theorem for analytic maps. In 2007 he was awarded the Ferran Sunyer i Ballaguer prize.
