Deadline to Register

Sunday July 1, 2018

Participation is by invitation only. All participants must register.

Much of mathematics takes place in smooth settings, but the study of smooth objects often leads us to the study of singular ones. This workshop will bring together experts from many of the different areas of mathematics where singularities occur (topology, algebraic geometry, analysis, etc.), with the hope that ideas developed in one area will shed new light elsewhere. The themes of the workshop will include intersection homology and L_2 cohomology, stratified spaces, resolution and deformation of singularities, and analysis on nonsmooth spaces.
