In singularity theory and algebraic geometry, the monodromy group is embodied in the Picard-Lefschetz formula and the Picard-Fuchs equations. It has applications in the weakened 16 th Hilbert problem and in mixed Hodge structures. There is a deep connection of monodromy theory with Galois theory of differential equations and algebraic functions. In covering these and other topics, this book underlines the unifying role of the monogropy group.
