Branched immersions onto compact orientable surfaces

John D. Elwin and Donald R. Short

Vol. 54 (1974), No. 1, 113–122
Abstract

In this paper smooth maps f : Mn Nn with a zero-dimensional critical set are considered. The singularities of these maps in the case n = 2 are known to be points where f is locally topologically equivalent to z za(d = 2,S,). Originally these singularities were studied in connection with the regularity of Douglas’ solution to Plateau’s problem.
