The Journal of Singularities is a refereed, online-only, journal of research articles. The 6th volume consists of 14 articles and over 170 pages, covering/discussing aspects of the theory of singularities of spaces and maps. The Editorial Board consists of world-renowned research mathematicians in the field of singularities. The Journal can be accessed at www.journalofsing.org and is available to the global mathematics community at no cost. In addition to this, Volume 7 is in the works with 6 articles already released to the public.
Accompanying the journal, The Worldwide Center of Mathematics also features free, online research talks from their in-house studio classroom space every-other month. The professionally recorded sessions are available online at http://centerofmath.com/research.html.
About the founding editor:
David B. Massey was born in Jacksonville, Florida in 1959. He attended Duke University as an undergraduate mathematics major from 1977 to 1981, graduating summa cum laude. He remained at Duke as a graduate student from 1981 to 1986. He received his Ph.D. in mathematics in 1986 for his results in the area of complex analytic singularities.
Professor Massey taught for two years at Duke as a graduate student, and then for two years, 1986-1988, as a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Notre Dame. In 1988, he was awarded a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Research Fellowship, and went to conduct research on singularities at Northeastern University. In 1991, he assumed a regular faculty position in the Mathematics Department at Northeastern. He has remained at Northeastern University ever since, where he is now a Full Professor.
Professor Massey has won awards for his teaching, both as a graduate student and as a faculty member at Northeastern. He has published 32 research papers, and two research-level books. In addition, he was a chapter author of the national award-winning book on teaching: "Dear Jonas: What can I say?, Chalk Talk: E-advice from Jonas Chalk, Legendary College Teacher',' edited by D. Qualters and M. Diamond, New Forums Press, (2004).
About the Worldwide Center of Mathematics, LLC:
The Worldwide Center of Mathematics, LLC was founded in the fall of 2008 by David B. Massey, an award-winning professor, with 26 years of college teaching experience, and a leading research mathematician in the area of singularities.
It is The Center of Math’s mission to make mathematics more accessible by using technology to keep costs low and quality high. We publish both open (free) and affordable textbooks and resources. The Center also performs other free services for the mathematical community, such as a providing a freely-accessible mathematics journal, and recording and freely-distributing, via the Web, research lectures which are given before live audiences in our studio classroom.
