This volume presents the proceedings of a meeting held in Sapporo (Japan) at Hokkaido University on singularities and arrangements of hyperplanes. Participants from the international community presented their research on singularities of curves, characteristic classes of singular varieties, \(D\)-modules, motives, resolution of singularities, Milnor fibration, Enriques diagrams, Hilbert schemes, and log-canonical singularities.

Volumes in this series are freely available electronically 5 years post-publication.

Published for the Mathematical Society of Japan by Kinokuniya, Tokyo, and distributed worldwide, except in Japan, by the AMS.


Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in several complex variables and analytic spaces and algebraic geometry.
