Local volumes, equisingularity and generalized smoothability

**Abstract:**In this talk I will introduce a class of singularities that generalizes the class of smoothable singularities: these are all singularities that admit deformations to singularities with deficient conormal spaces. I will discuss how this new class arises from problems in differential equisingularity and how it relates to the local volume of a line bundle.
