A wall-crossing formula for degrees of Real central projections


Okonek, Christian; Teleman, Andrei (2014). A wall-crossing formula for degrees of Real central projections. International Journal of Mathematics, 25(4):1450038.

Abstract

The main result is a wall-crossing formula for central projections defined on submanifolds of a Real projective space. Our formula gives the jump of the degree of such a projection when the center of the projection varies. The fact that the degree depends on the projection is a new phenomenon, specific to Real algebraic geometry. We illustrate this phenomenon in many interesting situations. The crucial assumption on the class of maps we consider is relative orientability, a condition which allows us to define a ℤ-valued degree map in a coherent way. We end the article with several examples, e.g. the pole placement map associated with a quotient, the Wronski map, and a new version of the Real subspace problem.
