Betti number bounds for fewnomial hypersurfaces via stratified Morse Theory.

Submission: 2008, January 17.

*Abstract:
We use stratified Morse theory for a manifold with corners to give a new bound
for the sum of the Betti numbers of a hypersurface
in $\R^n_{>}$ defined by a polynomial with $n{+}l{+}1$ terms.*
