Generalized Jacobian Conjecture:  M. Miyanishi generalized the usual Jacobian Conjecture as follows. Generalized Jacobian Conjecture. Let V be a normal affine variety. Suppose f:V o V is an unramified morphism. Then f is a proper morphism. After discussing some earlier positive results and some counterexamples to GJC we will outline the proof of the following result proved jointly with M. Miyanishi. Theorem. Let V be an irreducible normal affine surface. Assume that V has at least one singular point which is not a quotient singular point. Then any unramified self morphism is an isomorphism.
