*Abstract:
Let $f:M\longrightarrow {\R}$ be an analytic proper function defined in a
neighbourhood of a closed "regular" (for instance semi-analytic or
sub-analytic) set $P\subset f^{-1}(y)$.
We show that the set of non--trivial trajectories of the equation $\dot x
=\nabla f(x)$ attracted by $P$ has the same \v{C}ech--Alexander
cohomology groups as $\Omega\cap\{f<y\}$, where $\Omega$ is an
appropriately choosen neighbourhood of $P$. There are also
given necessary conditions for existence of a trajectory joining two
closed "regular" subsets of $M$.*
