Lectures on Point Residues, Márcio G. Soares
Throughout these notes we will sometimes refer, without proof, to results on Differential Topology, Commutative Algebra, Several Complex Variables and Algebraic Topology. In each section we quote basic references on these subjects and we urge the reader, in case he (she) is not familiarized with them, to have this bibliography at hand.
