Geometric Singularity Theory. Polish-Japanese Singularity Theory Working Days

Geometric Singularity Theory. Polish-Japanese Singularity Theory Working Days

24.08.2013 -  31.08.2013 | Warsaw


Registration deadline: June 10th, 2013.

Conference fee: 400 Polish zlotys (around 100 euros)


The conference aims at bringing together Polish and Japanese specialists in Geometric Singularity Theory interested in Applications, as well as other researchers willing to connect with the Singularity Theory techniques. In particular, the diffusion of these methods and their potentiality in actual research problems among the young researchers (postgraduate and postdoctoral students) is one of the goals of the meeting.

Topics of interest:

- Lagrangian and Legendrian singularities
- Asymptotic behaviour around caustics and wavefronts
- Symplectic singularities, local invariants
- Singular symplectic, contact and Poisson spaces
- Systems of rays, optical caustics
- Bifurcations of caustics and wavefronts
- Singularities of smooth maps and differential forms
- Motivic integration
- Subanalytic and semialgebraic sets- Lipschitz stratifications
- Lagrangian cobordism invariants
- Blow analytic equivalence
- Singular reduction, Hamiltonian systems and their generalizations
- Applications to physical systems and control theory
- Differential geometry and singularities
