Abstract: Calabi­Yau threefolds are compact Riemannian manifolds with holonomy
SU(3), and as such, are always projective algebraic varieties. As algebraic varieties,
there is a natural generalization to singular Calabi­Yau threefolds (although the
existence of generalized metrics on these singular spaces is not known). Moreover,
in the application of Calabi­Yau threefolds to the study of string compactification,
singular Calabi­Yau threefolds play an important role. We will review what is
known about the "Calabi­Yau singularities" on such spaces, with an eye on recent
developments and applications.
