In this series of talks, I will introduce basic concepts and results in singularity theory of smooth and holomorphic maps. In the first talk, I will present a gentle introduction to the elements of singularity theory and give a proof of the well-known Morse Lemma that illustrates key geometric and algebraic principles of singularity theory.

This will be a 1.5 hour (maybe slightly longer) seminar.

Following up on the previous series of talks we will show how to construct Lagrangian Floer homology and discuss it properties.

Note todays seminar is just form 2 to 3 to accomodate a seminar at 3.

In this series of talks I will descibe a general proceedure to construct homology theories using analytic/geometric techiques. We will then consider Morse homology in some detail and a simple example of this process. Afterwords we will consider other situations like Floer theory and possibly contact homology.
