This book explores a wide range of singular phenomena, providing mathematical tools for understanding them and highlighting their common features.

About the author

J. Eggers is Professor of Applied Mathematics at the University of Bristol. His career has been devoted to the understanding of self-similar phenomena, and he has more than fifteen years of experience in teaching non-linear and scaling phenomena to undergraduate and postgraduate students. Eggers has made fundamental contributions to our mathematical understanding of free-surface flows, in particular the break-up and coalescence of drops. His work was instrumental in establishing the study of singularities as a research field in applied mathematics and in fluid mechanics. He is a member of the Academy of Arts and Sciences in Erfurt, Germany, a fellow of the American Physical Society, and has recently been made a Euromech Fellow.


Many natural phenomena are described as singularities, for example, the formation of drops and bubbles, or the motion of cracks. Aimed at a broad audience of students and researchers in mathematics, physics and engineering, this book provides mathematical tools for understanding all aspects of singularities.
