## Resolution of tame quotient singularities

##### Abstract:

There is still no analogue of Hironaka's type resolution for algebraic varieties over fields of positive characteristics. However a theorem of DeJong states that, up to taking a purely inseparable cover, there exists a birational model whose singularities are at worst quotient. In this talk I will discuss a resolution algorithm of tame quotient singularities.
