Thurston's idea regarding 3-manifolds originated from an interesting fact about 2-manifolds that does tie in with geometric properties such as curvature. The authors do a good job of pretending like you don't have to know anything about algebraic topology but like I stated in the previous paragraph I couldn't resist googling because without getting some precursory knowledge it...

New Developments in Algebraic Geometry, Integrable Systems and Mirror Symmetry (RIMS, Kyoto, 2008) In the last two decades, many important developments and interactions in algebraic geometry and integrable systems have arisen from ideas in mirror symmetry. A large part of singularity theory is devoted to the singularities of algebraic varieties. Let be a root of the polynomia...
