One of the greatest mathematicians of the twentieth century, John Milnor has made fundamental discoveries in diverse areas of mathematics, from topology and dynamical systems to algebraic K-theory. He is renowned as a master of mathematical exposition and his many books have become standard references in the field. Singular Points of Complex Hypersurfaces provides an incisive and authoritative study of the local behavior of a complex hypersurface V in Euclidean space at a singularity Z0.
Princeton University Press is proud to have published the Annals of Mathematics Studies since 1940. One of the oldest and most respected series in science publishing, it has included many of the most important and influential mathematical works of the twentieth century. The series continues this tradition into the twenty-first century as Princeton looks forward to publishing the major works of the new millennium.
