CR singularities of real threefolds in $\Bbb C^4$.
(English)
[J] Adv. Geom. 6, No. 1, 109-137 (2006). ISSN 1615-715X; ISSN 1615-7168/e

The author first classifies the defining functions of 3-dimensional real analytic submanifolds in $\Bbb C^4$, up to third order terms. Excluding the trivial totally real case, there are 13 types of quadratic terms. The author then finds normal forms under a formal change of coordinates for two types of quadratic terms. \par More precisely, if $M\subset\Bbb C^4$ is a graph over the $(z_1,x_2,x_3)$-subspace of the form $y_2=O(3), z_3=\overline z_1^2+O(3)$, and $z_4=(z_1+x_2)\overline z_1+O(3)$, then the normal form of $M$ under formal holomorphic transformation is defined by $y_2=z_3-z_1^2=z_4-(z_1+x_2)\overline z_1=0$. If $N\subset\Bbb C^4$ is defined by $y_2=O(3), z_3=\overline z_1^2+O(3)$ and $z_4=z_1\overline z_1+O(3)$, then the normal form of $N$ under a formal transformation is defined by $y_2=z_3-\overline z_1^2=z_4-z_1\overline z_1=0$, or by $y_2=z_3-\overline z_1^2=z_4-z_1\overline z_1-\overline z_1x_2^k=0$ with $k\geq 2$. \par The author conjectures that the normal form of $M$ can be achieved by a convergent transformation.
