Singularités imposables en position générale à une hypersurface projective. (Singularities imposable in general position on a projective surface). (French) Zbl 0675.14025
The question adressed in this paper is the following: Given positive integers n and d, what is the maximal number m such that for a generic configuration of m points in \({\mathbb{P}}^ n\) there exists a hypersurface of degree \( d\) in \({\mathbb{P}}^ n\) having all m points of the configuration as singular points? This question is solved for all n and all \(d\neq 3,4\). The techniques used are an extension of those in the paper by A. Hirschowitz in Manuscr. Math. 50, 337-338 (1985; Zbl 0571.14002).
