Workshop on Algebraic and Analytic Singularities (WAAS), September 18-22.09.2023

The Center for Advanced Studies invites you to the:

Workshop on Algebraic and Analytic Singularities (WAAS)

which will be held on September 18-22, 2023 at the Faculty of Mathematics and Information Science of Warsaw University of Technology (77 Koszykowa Street, Warsaw).

The workshop will include three Master Course series.

The workshop will consist of regular lectures given by participants, along with several mini-lectures for PhD students and undergraduates on singularity theory, including:
