Variétés caractéristiques et variétés polaires. (Characteristic varieties and polar varieties). (French) Zbl 0566.32020
We describe the characteristic variety of a differential system of Deligne type associated to a complex hypersurface by means of the geometry of this hypersurface. For this purpose we use the relation between the vanishing cycles of the holomorphic solutions of a holonomic system and its characteristic variety.
