Permanence following Temkin (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
When one proceeds to a specialization, the good properties of algebraic equations may be destroyed. Starting with a bad specialization, one can try to improve it by performing modifications under control. If, at the end of the process, the initial good properties are preserved, one speaks of permanence. I shall give old and new examples of permanence. The new one concerns the relative semi-stable reduction of curves recently proved by Temkin.
