The local multiplicity of a holomorphic map
It is proved in this Chapter that the algebraic multiplicity of a holomorphic map coincides with its geometric multiplicity, that is with the index of the singular point of the corresponding holomorphic field. Although this result was known classically it seems that a detailed proof was published only in the paper  of V. P. Palamodov. The idea of the elementary proof presented below is due to A. G. Kushnirenko .
