On the topology of curves in complex surfaces. (English) Zbl 0715.14025
Topological methods in algebraic transformation groups, Proc. Conf., New Brunswick/NJ (USA) 1988, Prog. Math. 80, 117-133 (1989).

This is an exposition of the results of the author on the link at infinity of complex affine plane curves. For example the author proves that in many cases the topology of a complex curve \(V\subset {\mathbb{C}}^ 2\) is determined by its link at infinity.
