This is the study of the images of smooth spaces under smooth maps whose derivatives are not everywhere injective, therefore giving rise to singular images. Precise studies of the nature of these singularities connect to topics such as the behavior of caustics of waves and catastrophes. Members of this group do research on the structure of singularities and stratified spaces. There is also have a joint project with members of the Computer Science Department, on connections with computer vision.
