247. F. Bihan, F. Sottile:
Betti number bounds for fewnomial hypersurfaces via stratified Morse Theory.

e-mail: ,

Submission: 2008, January 17.

We use stratified Morse theory for a manifold with corners to give a new bound for the sum of the Betti numbers of a hypersurface in $\R^n_{>}$ defined by a polynomial with $n{+}l{+}1$ terms.

Mathematics Subject Classification (2000): 14P99.

Keywords and Phrases: stratifed Morse theory, fewnomials, Bett inumbers.
