Stable mappings and their singularities / M. Golubitsky, V. Guillemin

Auteur: Golubitsky, Martin (1945-) - AuteurCo-auteur: Guillemin, Victor (1937-) - AuteurType de document: Livre numériqueCollection: Graduate texts in mathematics ; 14Langue: anglaisÉditeur: New York : Springer, 1973 ISBN: 9781461579045 Note: This book is a textbook in contemporary theory of singularities of stable smooth mappings. The first chapters are concerned with the necessary preliminaries: the basic concepts of the theory of manifolds, Sard's theorem and the Malgrange preparation theorem. Further chapters deal with more special questions of the theory of singularities: here we find accounts of Thom's transversality theorem, Morse theory, Mather's theorem on the equivalence of infinitesimal stability and stability, and also results of Mather, Thom, Boardman, Morin and Levine on the classification and canonical forms of singularities.
