Abstract

We find lower bounds on the topological complexity of the critical (values) sets Σ(F)⊂Y of generic smooth maps F: X→Y, as well as on the complexity of the fibers F-1 (y)⊂ X in terms of the topology of X and Y, where the relevant topological invariants of X are often encoded in the geometry of some Riemannian metric supported by X.
