Singularity Hypotheses: A Scientific and Philosophical Assessment offers authoritative, jargon-free essays and critical commentaries on accelerating technological progress and the notion of technological singularity.

However, what is it? The discussion about singularity (or Singularity) seems to be going in the wrong way. The singularity would differ from the one introduced in the existing books. This work is an attempt to show what we could expect.

This book introduces a 'Big History' perspective to understand the acceleration of social, technological and economic trends towards a near-term singularity, marking a radical turning point in the evolution of our planet.

This book focuses on the mathematics of emergence of these naturally occurring partial-singularities, leading up to the possible human-founded singularity that will endow humankind with the potential for extraordinary capacities.

This book describes the technical science leading up until the point of the singularity with clear mathematical precision, and it is expected to provide innovative solutions in almost every area of scientific study.

This text offers a selection of papers on singularity theory presented at the Sixth Workshop on Real and Complex Singularities held at ICMC-USP, Brazil.
