Geometric Analysis and Topology Seminar

Metric Properties of Singularities of Complex Algebraic Surfaces

Speaker: Lev Birbrair, Federal University of CearĂ¡

Location: Warren Weaver Hall 613

Date: Monday, November 17, 2008, 2 p.m.


This is an introductory talk on Metric Theory of Complex Singularities. We are going to define and discuss the notions of Tangent Cones, Separating Subsets, Fast Loops and their relations to the question of Local metric Conical Structure of Complex surfaces.
