Perverse sheaves and Milnor fibers over singular varieties

Kiyoshi Takeuchi

Full-text: Open access


We review some recent applications of perverse sheaves (intersection cohomologies) in singularity theory. Milnor fibers over general complete intersection varieties will be treated. We also give a proof of a result announced in [31].
