The tangent cone of an algebraic variety in a singular point (w.l.o.g. the origin) is the cone which is the best approximation of the variety near the point. From an algebraic point of view,polynomial rings have a natural grading,under which polynomials split into homogeneous forms:the initial form of a polynomial is the homogeneous form of least degree which appears in this splitting.The tangent cone of a variety V is then the variety defined by the ideal of all the initial forms of… CONTINUE READING
