Part of the Ergebnisse der Mathematik und ihrer Grenzgebiete book series (MATHE3, volume 14)


In this chapter we analyze the normal Morse data at a critical point pZ of a function f1: Z → ℝ under the assumption that there exists a second function f2: Z → ℝ such that the map (f1,f2): Z → ℝ2 has a nondegenerate critical point at p (see below).
