This semester will be devoted to resolution of singularities -- a process that modifies varieties at the singular locus so that the resulting variety becomes smooth. For many years this topic had the reputation of very technical and complicated, though rather elementary.

In fact, the same resolution algorithm can be described in various settings, including schemes, algebraic varieties or complex analytic spaces.
