Much progress has been made recently in a number of areas by the application of new geometrical methods arising from advances in singularity theory. This collection of invited papers presented at the 3rd International Workshop on Real and Complex Singularities, held in August 1994 at ICMSC-USP (Sao Carlos), documents the geometric study of singularities and its applications.
