In April, 1975, I organised a convention on the Battelle examine heart, Seattle, Washington at the topic "Structural balance, disaster conception and their purposes within the sciences". To this convention have been invited a few mathematicians serious about the mathematical theories of structural balance and disaster idea, and different mathematicians whose important curiosity lay in purposes to varied sciences - actual, organic, scientific and social. Rene Thorn and Christopher Zeeman figured within the checklist of amazing members. The convention aroused significant curiosity, and plenty of mathematicians who weren't experts within the fields lined via the convention expressed their wish to attend the convention periods; moreover, scientists from the Battelle laboratories got here to Seattle to profit of advancements in those components and to think about attainable purposes to their very own paintings. In view of the attendance of those mathematicians and scientists, and so that it will let the expositions of the specialists to be intelligible to this wider viewers, I invited Professor Yung Chen Lu, of Ohio country collage, to return to Battelle Seattle just before the particular convention to bring a sequence of casual lecture-seminars, explaining the historical past of the mathematical concept and indicating the various real and attainable purposes. within the occasion, Yung-Chen Lu added his lectures within the week previous and the week following the particular convention, in order that the 1st 1/2 his direction was once preparatory and the second one part explanatory and evaluative. those lecture notes represent an improved model of the course.

Now we turn our attention to the Morse lemma. 2. ,. lRl be a smooth function. Pf -- ) oXiOX j , 1:::, i, j < n is non-zero. 3. A smooth function f:]Rn ... ]R is a Morse function is all its singular points are non-degenerate critical points. 1. (1) (The Morse Lemma) [51] Morse functions on ]Rn are (locally) stable at their non-degenerate critical points. (2) The set of all Morse functions is dense in C""(]Rn ,]Rl) • (3) Let xo be a non-degenerate critical point of a function Then there is a number f(x) ~ f: ]Rn ...

Either al I 0, a2 I 0 ai I or 0 Thus, these three This last statement is also true for by the same reason as above. Hence is a 7-dimensional manifold which is of course of codimension three in (3) A similar argument will be used to prove that the bad set J3(2,2) ':;: JR18 > 2. is also of codimension in According to the characterization of 82 folds and cusps in section 5 of this chapter, the bad set as 82 could be written where (a (a l , ••. ,(222 ) = I a ~ 8~ 0 ) a and satisfies (7. 1 ), (7. 3)} ~ 8~0) (al a Vwf =0 U and 8~1) and VWV~ = a satisfies O} 8~0) It is clear from (1), (2) that the codimensions of than two.

0, we can use the Implicit Function Theorem to obtain the existence of a map y = h(x,y) such that G(x,h(x,y),y) = O. 11) on this surface. • =Y , h(x,y) • With this new coordinate system v_ = 0, v_ = 1, x The curve of fold points is given by J 0' is a fold point, J x (0') = Uxx (0) f. O. y then J(x,y) = T:L(x,y) x = 0, • or in our case lL(x,y) = O. l6) for y near 0 in :JR. Notice that if we are eventually going to get coordinates in which the normal form, the fold must be mapped to the second coordinate axis.
