Abstract/Media

Let A be the union U(C_i) of a finite number of smooth plane curves C_i, such that the singular points of A are quasihomogeneous. This means that locally (at a singular point), the equation of A is homogeneous. We prove that if C is a smooth curve such that the singularities of A U C are quasihomogeneous, then there is a short exact sequence relating the bundle of logarithmic derivations on A to the bundle of logarithmic derivations on A U C. This yields an inductive tool for studying the splitting of these bundles in terms of the geometry of the divisor A|_C on C.
