Equisingularity in One-Parameter Families of Generically Reduced Curves
MetadataShow full item record
We explore some equisingularity criteria in one-parameter families of generically reduced curves. We prove the equivalence between Whitney regularity and Zariski’s discriminant criterion. We prove that topological triviality implies smoothness of the normalized surface. Examples are given to show that Witney regularity and equisaturation are not stable under the blow-up of the singular locus nor under the Nash modification.
