The Journal of Singularities is an online, freely accessible, refereed journal, which publishes only the highest-quality research articles in all areas of singularity theory. This includes, but is not limited to, the areas of real and complex analytic spaces and maps, subanalytic spaces, stratifications, resolutions of singularities, hyperplane arrangements, mixed Hodge theory, knot theory and Milnor fibrations, metric properties, singularities in characteristic p, and applications of singularity theory. In addition, papers in related areas of differential geometry, algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, and other fields are welcomed.


Allen Altman: A Term of Commutative Algebra

Dr. Allen Altman has taught at the University of California at San Diego; the
Universidad Simón Bolívar in Caracas, Venezuela, where he helped to establish the mathematics program; MIT; the University of Oslo (Norway); the University of Pernambuco (Brazil); and the Institute of Pure and Applied Mathematics in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil). He has been awarded Fulbright, National Science Foundation, and Woodrow Wilson fellowships. Dr. Altman's publications include regular contributions to Mathematical Reviews and articles in Transactions of the American Mathematical Society, Communications in Algebra, Advances in Mathematics, Compositio Mathematica, Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society, and American Journal of Mathematics.


Bruce Cooperstein: 'Elementary Linear Algebra',' An Introduction to Groups, Rings, and Fields'.

Bruce Cooperstein received his Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Michigan in 1975. He has been on the faculty of the University of California, Santa Cruz continuously since 1975, obtaining the rank of full professor in 1989. He has won two prestigious awards, a W.K.Kellogg National Fellowship (1982-85) and a Pew National Scholarship for Carnegie Scholars (1999-2000). Bruce’s research areas include finite groups, groups of Lie Type, Lie geometries, incidence and Galois geometry. He is author of one of the first on-line course portfolios, Learning to Think Mathematically and is the author of over 50 papers that have appeared in referred journals and proceedings of conferences. Bruce was a visiting Fellow of the Carnegie Foundation in Spring, 2007, and has also been involved in mathematics teacher professional development and mathematics education for over two decades.

Steve Kleiman: A Term of Commutative Algebra

Steve Kleiman received the S.B. from MIT in 1961, and the M.A. and Ph.D. from Harvard in 1962 and 65. Oscar Zariski was his doctoral advisor. He went to Columbia University as a Ritt instructor, joining their faculty from 1966-69. He subsequently joined the MIT mathematics faculty, professor in 1976. Professor Kleiman concentrates on problems in algebraic geometry and commutative algebra. A recipient of the Sloan and Guggenheim fellowships, he received the Honorary Doctorate of Science from the University of Copenhagen in 1989, and was elected Foreign Member of the Norwegian Academy of Sciences and Letters, and of the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters in 2002.

Kenneth Kuttler: Worldwide Pre-Calculus

Kenneth Kuttler has taught calculus and courses based on calculus for over thirty years. The first half of his career was spent at Michigan Tech. University, where he taught mainly calculus and differential equations to engineering students with an occasional course on vector analysis, linear algebra, advanced calculus or topology. He then went to BYU where he taught engineering math, advanced calculus, real analysis and linear algebra. Kuttler's main interest is in mathematical analysis, especially the mathematical questions encountered in the study of nonlinear problems from physics and engineering. He has also written several books, two graduate level analysis books and a calculus book. Recently, he has become interested in stochastic integration and stochastic evolution equations.

David Massey: Worldwide Differential, Integral and Multivariable Calculus

David B. Massey received his Ph.D. in mathematics in 1986 for his results in the area of complex analytic singularities. He taught for two years at Duke as a graduate student, and then for two years, 1986-1988, as a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Notre Dame. In 1988, he was awarded a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Research Fellowship, and went to conduct research on singularities at Northeastern University. In 1991, he assumed a regular faculty position in the Mathematics Department at Northeastern. He has remained at Northeastern University ever since, where he is now a Full Professor.

Robert McOwen: Worldwide Differential Equations

Robert McOwen received his Ph.D. in Mathematics from UC Berkeley in 1978. After a one-year AMS-NSF postdoctoral fellowship that he took at the Courant Institute at NYU, he joined the Math Department at Northeastern University in Boston. Since then, he has taught many courses in analysis and differential equations at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. In 1996 he published a graduate-level textbook in partial differential equations; the second edition was published in 2003 and is still in use by many mathematics departments around the world. In 1997 he wrote a series of computer labs to accompany an undergraduate course in ordinary differential equations, which were packaged by the Publisher with the textbook and used for many years by all sections of the course at Northeastern. He continues to teach graduate and undergraduate courses in analysis and differential equations, and conducts research into the theory of partial differential equations.

Scott Stevens: 'Introduction to Statistics: Think & Do', 'Matrices, Vectors, and 3D Math'

Scott Stevens is an Associate Professor of Mathematics and Statistics at Champlain College. He spent the early part of his career teaching upper level and graduate courses in mathematics and statistics while researching nonlinear dynamics in the context of biological fluid dynamics. For the past 5 years he has been teaching statistics and other introductory math courses to non-math majors. Outside of teaching, he continues to do research involving the analysis of large data sets for intracranial pressure dynamics of traumatic brain injury patients at Fletcher Allen Hospital in Burlington, Vermont.

 “This (the WWCoM) is surely something that could shake up the textbook publishing industry and help reduce the ballooning costs of education.”
Boston Innovation

The pdf format is very helpful- not only does it erase the cost of buying a book, it is also much easier to find materials via links and the table [of content].”
Student

The ma­terials available from CenterofMath.org are well written and include many embedded videos explaining problem solutions. We have been using FDWK for years with good re­sults.  I have a high level of confidence that we could switch to this digital text and lose nothing more than an expensive textbook fee and some weight in a backpack. I think we are seeing the future of textbooks here.”
University Professor

“I like the way [the Center of Math] is heading. I believe that electronic textbooks should be far more than a PDF file of the text, figures, and problem sets.  Interactivity is the way textbooks should be headed.”
University Professor

"The PDF textbook is much easier to navigate to find pages, sections, and formulas than using a traditional, physical textbook."
Student
