Algebra Seminar

Motivic integration and singularities of real analytic functions

Adam Parusinski

Friday August 14, 12:05--12:55pm, Carslaw 375


We give a non-technical, elementary introduction to Kontsevich's motivic integration method. At the end of the talk we present recent applications to classification of singularities of real analytic function germs.


After the seminar we will take the speaker to lunch.

See the Algebra Seminar web page for information about other seminars in the series.
