Summary: This article emanates from the opening speech of the conference “Singularities and computer algebra” which took place on October 18–20, 2004 on the occasion of Gert-Martin Greuel’s 60th birthday. When preparing the speech, we realized soon that it is impossible to cover in such a speech Gert-Martin’s complete work which is documented in more than eighty publications. Not to mention Gert-Martin’s organisational work for the mathematical community.
We decided to illuminate only some cornerstones of Gert-Martin’s mathematical work: his Ph.D.-Thesis in 1973, his Habilitationsschrift in 1979, the SINGULAR project, the work on moduli spaces, and the work on equisingular families.
