Title: Singularity Theory

Abstract: Singularity Theory studies singular phenomena in various fields: singular points of sets (where the set is not locally a manifold), singular points of functions (where the partial derivatives are all 0) or of mappings (where the Jacobian matrix is not maximal rank), singular points of vector fields or differential forms (where it is zero), singular points of geometric structures, etc. I will give examples, discuss common techniques (e.g. stability, genericity, finite determinacy, bifurcation), and some areas I’m particularly interested in.
