This talk concerns a naturally occurring family of Calabi-Yau manifolds that degenerates in the sense of metric geometry, algebraic geometry and nonlinear PDE. A primary tool in analyzing their behavior is the recently developed regularity theory. We will give a precise description of arising singularities and explain possible generalizations.
