On the vanishing topology of isolated Cohen–Macaulay codimension $2$ singularities

Anne Frühbis-Krüger and Matthias Zach

Geometry & Topology 25 (2021) 2167–2194
Abstract

We establish the rationality of simple isolated Cohen–Macaulay codimension 2 (ICMC2) singularities in all dimensions 2 and explicitly compute the vanishing homology of a certain class of threefolds including all the simple ones. ICMC2 singularities are determinantal and can be viewed as a natural generalization of complete intersections. The main tool for our investigations is the so-called Tjurina transformation — a special blowup construction based on the determinantal structure and often compatible with deformations.
