Blowing-up a point in the singular locus
Can you please add the definition of an ordinary singularity? |

“Exceptional components” of the exceptional divisor of a blow up
@KarlSchwede: yes, $\overline{\lbrace P \rbrace} \neq V$, and you are right in all other counts. |

Is being reduced a generic property of schemes?
Dear Sándor, not sure I get the example: your $Y$ is nowhere reduced, so it does not satisfy the assumption of being generically reduced. |

A question on resolution of singularities
Is it true that $\pi$ restricts to an isomorphism on $Y\setminus \pi^{-1}(\{p\} \cup L)$, so that it does not change any point on $\mathbb{P}^4 \setminus (\{p\} \cup L)$? If this is true then the answer is clearly negative. |

Jacobian of an injective mapping
@user126154: you are right. I saw in the question $J_f(a) < 0$, and immediately interpreted $J_f$ as the Jacobian determinant. |

Jacobian of an injective mapping
@user126154: I meant the function $\phi: \mathbb{R} \to \mathbb{R}$ defined by $\phi(t) := J_f(a + t(b-a))$. |

Jacobian of an injective mapping
For the 2nd question apply the intermediate value theorem to $J_f$-restricted to the line joining a and b. |

Normal polytopes - counterexample?
Regarding the 'related question': M = dim(P) -1 suffices (Theorem 2.2.12, Toric Varieties, Cox-Little-Schenck). |

What are some mathematical sculptures?
@ToddTrimble: Hi Todd, it had a "coppery" look, but not sure if it was mixed with anything else. |
