This is a review of some results concerning Lagrangian varieties, mainly their algebraic and geometric aspects. There are examples of known Lagrangian singularities and their vanishing ideals. Deformations of Lagrangian singularity \(L\) (and its rigidity) are studied by the complex associated with an involutive ideal and the symplectic structure on the deformation space defined by the intersection form of a Milnor fibre. The \(\delta \)-invariant of a plane curve singularity is studied in the symplectic context which consider the symplectic structure on the Lagrangian deformation space. Finally, the author reports not only on well known basic results but also on some newer developments, and poses some open problems and conjectures.
