Title: Jet schemes and resolution of singularities
Abstract: I will talk on one hand about the notion of a generating sequence of a valuation, and on the other hand
about the relation between jet schemes and divisorial valuations. I will then describe how this relation allows one to construct generating sequences of some divisorial valuations; this provides a constructive approach to a conjecture of Teissier on resolution of singularities with toric morphisms.
