A publication of the Mathematical Society of Japan

This book contains original and survey papers on
Singularities in Geometry and Topology, which resulted from the Sixth
Franco-Japanese Symposium on Singularities, held in Fukuoka, from
September 5–10, 2011.

Though singularity theory originated in the 19th century, this
field of research became more popular in France after Heisuke Hironaka
came to Paris. Then, many collaborations between Japanese and French
mathematicians started, and the conferences on Singularities in
Geometry and Topology continue to develop this collaboration between
France and Japan.

This volume consists of two survey articles and 12 research articles
whose topics include algebraic curves and varieties, line
arrangements, mixed polynomials, algebraic local cohomology classes,
stable maps, and mirror symmetry.

Published for the Mathematical Society of Japan by Kinokuniya, Tokyo, and distributed worldwide, except in Japan, by the AMS.

Volumes in this series are freely available electronically 5 years post-publication.
