In this series of talks, I will introduce basic concepts and results in singularity theory of smooth and holomorphic maps.  In the first talk, I will present a gentle introduction to the elements of singularity theory and give a proof of the well-known Morse Lemma that illustrates key geometric and algebraic principles of singularity theory.
