Abstract

The characteristics of a singularity which were discussed in the second chapter (the multiplicity of a singularity, its intersection matrix, its monodromy group...) are closely linked to such objects as the level and function bifurcation sets of the singularity, its resolution and its polar curve. Several of these links will be discussed in this chapter.
