We consider a one-parameter family of Grushin-type singularities on surfaces, and discuss the possible diffusions that extend Brownian motion to the singularity. This gives a quick proof and clear intuition for the fact that heat can only cross the singularity for an intermediate range of the parameter. When crossing is possible and the singularity consists of one point, we give a complete description of these diffusions, and we describe a "best" extension, which respects the isometry group ofarXiv:1910.02256v1 fatcat:34yahgmtozdq7m26bpwz4ci4ze
