This volume is a collection of 6 lecture notes presented at the School on Singularity Theory,
São Carlos, Brazil, July 16-21, 2012, or at the 12th International Workshop on Real and
Complex Singularities, São Carlos, Brazil, July 22-27, 2012.
Topics treated in the 6 lecture notes written by established authors cover, reflecting authors'
expertise, a wide range including Topology and Geometry of real singularities, Singularities of
holomorphic map-germs, Singularities of complex algebraic sets, Algorithms of the computer algebra
"SINGULAR", Singularities of maps and characteristic classes, Limit cycles of systems of ordinary
Each lecture note is extremely well-written with plentiful examples and may be considered as one
of the most excellent readings in the relevant topic. This book is suitable for being kept at one's
desk-side and widely recommended for graduate students studying singularity theory, and researchers
in various fields who would like to enjoy the world of singularities.
