Topics in Equisingularity Theory
About the book:
This book is an introduction to equisingularity theory through a specific problem, namely the famous Zariski multiplicity conjecture. This conjecture says that the multiplicity of a reduced complex hypersurface singularity is an embedded topological in-variant. Motivated by this problem, the book aims to present a number of major advances in equisingularity theory over the last five decades. A special emphasis is placed on recent developments on non-isolated singularities.
