Abstract:
The Lipschitz geometry of complex varieties has been visited
often since it was first addressed by Pham and Teissier in a 1969
preprint in the 1dimensional case. However it is only relatively
recently, starting with a 2008 paper of Birbrair and Fernandes, that
it became clear how rich this geometry is in higher dimensions. The
talk will mainly address complex dimension 2, which is now well
understood, using ingredients from 3manifold topology. (Joint work
with Lev Birbrair and Anne Pichon.)
