Title: Cohen-Macaulay rings of finite representation type
Abstract: In this talk I will discuss complete Cohen-Macaulay local rings of finite representation type, i.e., it only has finitely many isomorphism classes of indecomposable maximal CM modules. This theory connects commutative algebra with representation theory and with the theory of Arnold's simple singularities.
