"This work unfolds systematically in four parts, interweaving theory and applications. The case studies examined in Part III illustrate the impact of reduction techniques, and may serve as prototypes for future new applications. In the same spirit most chapters include a problem section. Background results and solutions to selected problems close the volume." "This book can be used as a text in graduate courses in pure or applied analysis, or as a resource for researchers working with singularities in geometry and mathematical physics."--BOOK JACKET.
