This School aims to bring together graduate students and young researchers from all regions in Brazil and countries of the South America as audience, and confirmed researchers from all over the world representing different approaches to singularities in Mathematics as speakers.
The school will offer a solid introduction to this rich topic by presenting the fundamentals of the topology and geometry of singularities of spaces and maps, and of the geometric bifurcation theory, together with the necessary algebraic and analytic tools, aiming to a bunch of current research lines.
Will be presented ongoing research topics such as determinantal varieties, bifurcation of families, fibrations structures and new classes of singularities, Lipschitz geometry of singularities, vision and other applications. All courses will be planned to provide the students with practical tools via the open source computer algebra system ‘Singular’.
Official language of the school: English
This school will take place in two stages: a first online part in 2021, then a second face-to-face part in 2022.
