Abstract

We refine the transformation to smooth normal form for an analytic family of vector fields in the neighbourhood of a saddle-node. This refinement is very powerful and allows us to prove the finite cyclicity of families of graphics (‘ensembles’) occurring inside analytic families of vector fields. In [ZR1] and [ZR2] it is used to prove the finite cyclicity of graphics through a nilpotent singular point of elliptic type. Several examples are presented: lips, graphics with two subsequent lips, graphics with a nilpotent point of elliptic type and a saddle-node. We also discuss the bifurcation diagram of limit cycles for a graphic in the lips.
