    Contemporary Mathematics
    Volume: 901989
    MSC: Primary 32; Secondary 00; 14;

    This volume contains the proceedings of the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications Participating Institutions Conference on Singularities, held at the University of Iowa in July 1986. The conference brought together an international group of researchers in algebraic and analytic singularity theory. This collection consists of research papers related to talks given at the conference.

    The field of singularities takes techniques from and gives results to many areas of mathematics, including algebraic and differential geometry and topology, complex analysis, Lie algebras and reflection groups, and combinatorics. All these areas are represented here with an emphasis on local algebraic, analytic and tangential properties, deformation and topology of singularities, and arrangements of hyperplanes.

    This volume will be of interest to current and prospective researchers in various aspects of singularity theory, as it provides an overview of the current state of singularity theory and details work in several subareas. Many of the articles provide a basis for further research, and a list of problems presented at the conference is included.
