    Clay Mathematics Proceedings
    Volume: 202014; 340 pp
    MSC: Primary 14; 13; 32; 58;

    Resolution of Singularities has long been considered as being a difficult to access area of mathematics. The more systematic and simpler proofs that have appeared in the last few years in zero characteristic now give us a much better understanding of singularities. They reveal the aesthetics of both the logical structure of the proof and the various methods used in it. The present volume is intended for readers who are not yet experts but always wondered about the intricacies of resolution. As such, it provides a gentle and quite comprehensive introduction to this amazing field. The book may tempt the reader to enter more deeply into a topic where many mysteries—especially the positive characteristic case—await to be disclosed.

    Titles in this series are co-published with the Clay Mathematics Institute (Cambridge, MA).

    Readership

    Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in algebraic geometry, commutative geometry, singularity theory, and local analytic geometry.
