 This volume constitutes the proceedings of the Third FrancoJapanese Symposium on Singularities in Geometry and Topology, held in Sapporo in September 2004. It contains not only research papers on the most advanced topics in the field but also some survey articles, which give a broad scope of some areas of the subject. Volumes in this series are freely available electronically 5 years postpublication. Published for the Mathematical Society of Japan by Kinokuniya, Tokyo, and distributed worldwide, except in Japan, by the AMS.
