This paper characterizes singularities with Mather minimal log discrepancies in the highest unit interval, i.e., the interval between $$d-1$$d−1 and $$d$$d, where $$d$$d is the dimension of the scheme. The class of these singularities coincides with one of the classes of (1) compound Du Val singularities, (2) normal crossing double singularities, (3) pinch points, and (4) pairs of non-singular varieties and boundaries with multiplicities less than or equal to 1 at the point. As a corollary, we… 
Finite determination conjecture for Mather–Jacobian minimal log discrepancies and its applications
We study singularities in arbitrary characteristic. We propose finite determination conjecture for Mather–Jacobian minimal log discrepancies in terms of jet schemes of a singularity. The conjecture
Singularities with respect to Mather-Jacobian discrepancies
As is well known, the "usual discrepancy" is defined for a normal Q-Gorenstein variety. By using this discrepancy we can define a canonical singularity and a log canonical singularity. In the same
Finite formal model of toric singularities
We study the formal neighborhoods at rational nondegenerate arcs of the arc scheme associated with a toric variety. The first main result of this article shows that these formal neighborhoods are

In this paper we characterize two-dimensional semi-log canonical hypersurfaces in arbitrary characteristic from the viewpoint of the initial term of the defining equation. As an application, we prove
Polar exploration of complex surface germs
We prove that the topological type of a normal surface singularity pX, 0q provides finite bounds for the multiplicity and polar multiplicity of pX, 0q, as well as for the combinatorics of the
Singularities in arbitrary characteristic via jet schemes
This paper summarizes the results at the present moment about singularities with respect to the Mather-Jacobian log discrepancies over algebraically closed field of arbitrary characteristic. The
Computations of Mather Minimal Log Discrepancies
We compute the Mather minimal log discrepancy via jet schemes and arc spaces for toric varieties and very general hypersurfaces.


Mather discrepancy and the arc spaces
The goal of this paper is a classification theorem of the singularities according to a new invariant, Mather discrepancy. On the other hand, we show some evidences convincing us that Mather
Minimal Discrepancy for a Terminal cDV Singularity Is 1
An answer to a question raised by Shokurov on the minimal discrepancy of a terminal singularity of index 1 is given. It is proved that the minimal discrepancy is 1 (it is 2 for a non-singular point
Towards boundedness of minimal log discrepancies by the Riemann-Roch theorem
We introduce an approach via the Riemann-Roch theorem to the boundedness problem of minimal log discrepancies in fixed dimension. After reducing it to the case of a Gorenstein terminal singularity,
Towards the singular locus of the space of arcs
We give a theory on the space of arcs $X_\infty$ of a singular variety $X$, based on the finiteness property of the stable points of $X_\infty$. We also show how computations can be made in this
LETTERS OF A BI-RATIONALIST IV. Geometry of log flips
For a birational log Fano contraction, it is conjectured an inequality between the dimension of its exceptional locus and the minimal log discrepancy over the locus. The conjecture follows from the
Jacobian discrepancies and rational singularities
Inspired by several works on jet schemes and motivic integration, we consider an extension to singular varieties of the classical definition of discrepancy for morphisms of smooth varieties. The
Jet Schemes and Singularities of W d r (C) Loci
Kempf proved that the theta divisor of a smooth projective curve C has rational singularities. In this paper we estimate the dimensions of the jet schemes of the theta divisor and show that all these
Divisorial Valuations via Arcs
This paper shows a finiteness property of a divisorial valuation in terms of arcs. First we show that every divisorial valuation over an algebraic variety corresponds to an irreducible closed subset
On minimal log discrepancies
An explanation to the boundness of minimal log discrepancies conjectured by V.V. Shokurov would be that the minimal log discrepancies of a variety in its closed points define a lower semi-continuous
