Integrals and differential equations
In this chapter we shall prove that many-valued functions, given as integrals of a holomorphic differential form over classes of continuous families of homologies, vanishing at the critical point of a holomorphic function, are all solutions of an ordinary homogeneous linear differential equation, the order of which is not greater than the multiplicity of the critical point The analysis of this phenomenon leads to the concept of the Gauss-Manin connection in the fibration of vanishing cohomologies associated with the Milnor fibration of the critical point.
