 This volume is the proceedings of the 12th International Research Institute of the Mathematical Society of Japan, held during 2003. The papers cover several important topics in singularity theory, including survey on motivic integrations, Thom polynomials, complex analytic singularity theory, generic differential geometry, etc. 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.
