Describing Singularities


In the last fourty years, an immense amount of energy has been put into the search for singularities of non linear waves and their description using very different approaches: formal computations, numerical evidence, rigorous derivations, ... In the last ten years, a unified vision has emerged which I will present to describe all known mechanisms of singularity formation. This will motivate the search for new unexpected scenarii.
