Minimal Stratifications for Line Arrangements (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
The homotopy type of complements of complex
hyperplane arrangements have a special property,
so called minimality (Dimca-Papadima and Randell,
around 2000). Since then several approaches based
on (continuous, discrete) Morse theory have appeared.
In this talk, we introduce the "dual" object, which we
call minimal stratification for real two dimensional cases.
A merit is that the minimal stratification can be explicitly
described in terms of semi-algebraic sets.
We also see associated presentation of the fundamental group.
