Peter Giblin (University of Liverpool)

Functions on curves, families of functions on curves, evolutes and symmetry sets; bifurcation sets and discriminants; functions on surfaces, ridges, medial axes in three dimensions.

Further details of some more of the symmetry set constructions, and including other examples such as the centre symmetry set and affine equidistants which are affinely invariant. The method of generating functions.
