Kharlamov, V. (ed.) et al., Topology of real algebraic varieties and related topics. Dedicated to the memory of D. A. Gudkov. Transl. ed. by A. B. Sossinsky. Providence, RI: American Mathematical Society. Transl., Ser. 2, Am. Math. Soc. 173, 141-155 (1996).
The article contains new results in the classification of oval arrangements of real plane non-singular curves of degree 9: the author constructs such curves with 27 ovals (the maximal possible number for degree 9), realizing 8 new arrangements. The main construction tool, used in a series of preceding papers by the author as well, is a deformation of singular curves of the given degree along the Viro procedure, namely, the Viro theorem provides the existence of a non-singular algebraic curve, which can topologically be obtained by a replacement of a singular point by a real algebraic curve with a certain Newton polygon.
