A celebration of the 60th birthday of Pepe Seade

An external activity of the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP).

A school of the International Center for Pure and Applied Mathematics (CIMPA)

School: November 24th - December 5th, 2014, Cuernavaca

Workshop: December 8th to 19th 2014, Merida


The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Trieste, Italy, Centre International de Mathématiques Pures et Appliquées (CIMPA), Nice, France, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), México, Universidad Autónoma de Yucatán (UADY), Mérida, México, are jointly organizing the School and Workshop on Singularities in geometry, topology, foliations and dynamics. This event is co-sponsored by ICTP, CIMPA, UNAM, UADY and CONACYT.

The School will take place at Instituto de Matemáticas, UNAM, Unidad Cuernavaca, Cuernavaca, México, from 24 November to 5 December, and the Workshop will take place at Universidad Autónoma de Yucatán, Mérida, México, from 8 to 19 December 2014.

Singularity theory is a crossroad of various areas of mathematics and science in general. In the last 5 years we have seen striking developments, both within singularity theory itself and in its relations with other areas of mathematics. The purpose of this event is to present some of the basic foundations of singularity theory, as well as recent results that bring us up to the boundary of our present knowledge in various topics. Particular emphasis will be given to the theory of singularities in geometry, topology, foliations and dynamics.
