On the homotopy of stratified spaces. (Sur l’homotopie des espaces stratifi√©s.) (French) Zbl 0940.55011
The author proves theorems concerning relative connectivity of complement of analytic subspaces. Let us mention theorems 3 and 4.
Theorem 3: Let \(M\) be an \(n\)-dimensional real analytic manifold and \(Y\) be \(d\)-dimensional closed analytic subspace, then \((M,M\smallsetminus Y)\) is \((n-1-d)\)-connected.
Theorem 4: Let \(M\) be a real compact analytic manifold of dimension \(n\), and \(X\) and \(Y\) closed analytic subspaces. Suppose that \(X\) and \(Y\) admit analytic Whitney stratifications \(S\) and \(S'\) and that the strata of \(S\) and \(S'\) intersect transversely, then \((X,X\smallsetminus (X\cap Y))\) is \((n- 1-d)\)-connected, with \(d\) the dimension of \(Y\).
