The author describes the singularities of a sufficiently smooth real solution of the equation \(F(x,u,\partial^{\alpha})=0\), \(| \alpha | \leq m\), on an open set \(\Omega\) of R n, where F is a \(C^{\infty}\) function of its arguments. It is assumed that \(p_ m=\sum_{| \alpha | =m}\partial F/\partial u_{\alpha}\cdot \xi^{\alpha}\) is strictly hyperbolic with respect to \(\xi_ 1\) and that every bicharacteristic starting from \((x,\xi)\in T\quad *\Omega \cap (x_ 1>0)\) such that \(p_ m(x,\xi)=0\), meets \(T\quad *\Omega \cap (x_ 1<0).\) One tries to obtain singularities of linear type or to control the birth of singularities which are the offsprings of nonlinear interactions. The four parts of the paper are: result in dimension 2 or to first order, paradifferential calculus made precise, iterate action of not very regular vector fields, and Cauchy problem with singular data in one point.
