Spécialisation de faisceaux et monodromie modérée. (French) Zbl 0532.14008
Astérisque 101-102, 332-364 (1983).
Given an analytic subspace Y of an analytic space X, this paper defines in an intrinsic way a ”specialization” functor \(Sp_{Y\backslash X}:D_{const}(X)\to D_{const}(C_{Y\backslash X})\) from the (derived) category of constructible sheaves on X to the (derived) category of constructible sheaves on the normal cone to Y in X; the sheaves thus obtained are locally constant along the punctured generatrices of the normal cone, and in the special case of a divisor Y defined by a local equation f they correspond to Deligne’s ”sheaves of vanishing cycles” \(R^ i\psi_ f\). - The p characteristic and the complex case are discussed separately.
