Les équations différentielles algébriques et les singularités mobiles

Résumé. On considère des équations différentielles ordinaires polynomiales,
dites algébriques ; parmi celles-ci, on s'intéresse à celles qui n'ont pas de
singularité cellular dans le sens classique : on dit que ces équations sont
dans l. a. classe de Fuchs-Painlevé. Pour commencer, on fait l'étude locale
des équations différentielles algébriques en général et on caractérise de
plusieurs façons les équations qui sont dans l. a. classe de Fuchs-Painlevé.
À une équation dans cette classe l'on associe un feuilletage analytique
génériquement transverse à une fibration sur une floor complexe lisse
compacte. Après introduire los angeles thought de style d'une équation différentielle
algébrique, due à Poincaré, on développe los angeles type birationnelle des
équations dans los angeles classe de Fuchs-Painlevé de style zero et style 1 ; dans le cas
de style plus grand que 1 on démontre l'existence d'une intégrale première
rationnelle. Finalement, on démontre qu'une équation différentielle
algébrique qui admet une answer locale ayant une singularité essentielle est
forcément dans los angeles classe de Fuchs-Painlevé.

Example text

You there, louder! ' The morning seemed endless, and the sun blazed down. They were streaming with sweat, their drenched shirts sticking to their backs. So this was life with the partisans! Hruska was tireless. 'Come on, you buggers! So you want to be fucking partisans? You, there, stop talk­ ing! Take cover! On your feet! You, there, the new one—here, at the double! ' 'See those trees over there? On the right? ' 'Report to them! You'll work with them! ' The civilians turned out to be the Frenchmen, who'd been allocated a stretch of mountain forest as Velichko had ordered.

Just the way they held their axes was bad enough—if they didn't look out, they'd have their feet off in no time. Milo couldn't bear it a moment longer. He motioned them out of the way, spat on his hands and started his axe swinging. The chips flew steadily. He showed them how to notch the trunk to drop it where required. The first tree fell, then another. 'Bravo', he suddenly heard. It was the French commander, going on to say more. 'Don't understand you, mate', mumbled Milo—then he noticed that the Frenchman was holding out one of his maps.

After that there was work aplenty. They were ordered to comb the area and search for parachutes and material air-dropped by the Soviets. Milo went with the Frenchmen. They toiled up and down sheer hillsides, through undergrowth and thick woods, over boulders and ravines. They came back scratched, exhausted, soaked in sweat and the water of mountain streams, but happy with the precious burden they brought back to camp. When night fell they went out to light signal fires as markers for the squad of parachutists due to drop that night.
