PINTEA Cornel S.
The Size of Critical and Tangency Sets

Format: add to cart
REZUMAT: We emphasize several faces of the critical phenomena for maps between two manifolds Mm and Nn. In the nite dimensional setting, it basically concerns those points of the source manifold where the rank of the di erential is strictly less than its maximum possible value minfm; ng. Note that for n = 1 the critical points are those where the di erential vanishes and this fact is being considered as the de nition of the critical points of real valued functions de ned on in nite dimensional Banach spaces. The set of images of such points is also part of the critical phenomena and the size of the critical sets and the sets of critical values is sometimes evaluated.
