164 Scott, IsabelleTropical analog to the log canonical thresholdIn algebraic geometry, the log canonical threshold is a property of singularities of planar curves. While singularities have multiplicities, the log canonical threshold can be a more telling invariant. It helps to classify curves beyond what the multiplicity indicates by examining how quickly the in...Geometry, Algebraic2013-04
