Many local rings have geometric interpretations. Cohen–Macaulay rings correspond to equi-dimensionality, and regular local rings correspond to non-singularity, but what is a geometric interpretation of Gorenstein local rings? I am not able to find one, so suggestions are most welcome!

Cohen-Macaulay is much stronger than the equidimensionality which is just a topological property. –  user18119 Dec 21 '12 at 13:52
