Resolution of Singularities and Semistable Reduction
The main lectures will give an introduction to resolution of singularities, semistable reduction of curves, and relations between these topics. We will discuss both theoretical and algorithmic aspects, and focus on the case of complex and arithmetic surfaces. The school is sponsored by the new DFG priority program SPP 1489 Algorithmic and Experimental Methods in Algebra, Number Theory, and Geometry.
