  Singular point of an algebraic variety - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mathematics, a singular point of an algebraic variety V is a point P that is 'special' (so, singular), in the geometric sense that V is not locally flat there.
A general algebraic variety V being defined by several polynomials, or in algebraic terms an ideal of polynomials, the condition on a point P to be a singular point of V is that none of those polynomials have a non-zero linear (degree 1) term, when written in terms of variables
Points of V that are not singular are non-singular.

 Algebraic variety - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Algebraic varieties are one of the central objects of study in classical (and to some extent, modern) algebraic geometry.
An abstract algebraic variety is a particular kind of scheme; the generalization to schemes on the geometric side enables an extension of the correspondence described above to a wider class of rings.
Basically, a variety is a scheme whose structure sheaf is a sheaf of K-algebras with the property that the rings R that occur above are all domains and are all finitely generated K-algebras, i.e., quotients of polynomial algebras by prime ideals.

 PlanetMath: nonsingular variety
Over the real or complex numbers, nonsingularity corresponds to “smoothness”: at nonsingular points, varieties are locally real or complex manifolds (this is simply the implicit function theorem).
Singular points generally have “corners” or self intersections.
This is version 5 of nonsingular variety, born on 2001-12-21, modified 2002-12-27.

Elimination is the algebraic counterpart of the geometric concept of projection.

Algebraic geometry is one of the oldest and vastest branches of mathematics.
In McGill, algebraic geometry is represented by Peter Russell and Eyal Goren and is very much connected to the interests of other members of the department: Henri Darmon, Jacques Husrtubise and Niky Kamran.
Here we comment that an abelian variety is a complete algebraic group (over C it is topologically a torus) and the moduli space is a variety that parameterize all those abelian varieties.

The twisted cubic is given as the first example of a concrete variety that is not a hypersurface, along with their generalizations, the rational normal curves.
In addition, algebraic groups on varieties are discussed in lecture 10, allowing one to discuss a kind of glueing operation on varieties, just as in geometric topology, namely by taking the quotient of varieties via finite groups.
The behavior of a variety at a singular point is studied in lecture 20 using tangent cones.

If the group variety is affine, such a group is an extension of a connected linear group by a finite group.
This amounts to the statement that the connected component of the identity has finite index in G (since G is quasicompact), and that an affine group variety has a faithful matrix representation.
The quotient (for the existence there is something to prove!) should be an abelian variety and Spec(\Gamma) is an affine variety for which you can use the results posted before.

An extremely explicit paper which shows how to apply the idea of the determinant of a complex to compute resultants.
In this paper, which is written in the lagnuage of combinatorics and polhedral geometry, the authors introduce a notion of fiber polytopes which generalizes secondary polytopes.
I will sketch the three main approaches the authors use to study and compute discriminants and resultants -- first through an application of the classical geometric notion of a dual variety, next through a tool from homological algebra known as the determinant of a complex, and finally via combinatorial methods involving triangulations of polytopes.

 Abelian group actions on algebraic varieties with one fixed point   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
Theorem: Let X be a complete algebraic variety over an algebraically closed field of characteristic p>=0, and let G be a finite abelian group acting on X. Assume the order of G is l^r, where l is a prime different from p.
If the fixed point set consists of exactly one point x, then X is singular in X. Corollary: If X is smooth then G has either no fixed point or at least two of them.
This is an algebraic analogue of (much deeper) results of Conner-Floyd, Atiyah-Bott and others in the topological category.

 The Denef-Loeser series for toric surface singularities, Monique Lejeune-Jalabert, Ana J. Reguera
Let $H$ denote the set of formal arcs going through a singular point of an algebraic variety $V$ defined over an algebraically closed field $k$ of characteristic zero.
Recently (1999), J. Denef and F. Loeser have proved that the Poincar\'{e} series associated with the image of $j^s(H)$ in some suitable localization of the Grothendieck ring of algebraic varieties over $k$ is a rational function.
We compute this function for normal toric surface singularities.
