    In this paper, it is shown that the existence of two independent holomorphic first integrals for foliations by curves on $({{\Bbb {C}}}^3,0)$ is not a topological invariant. More precisely, we provide an example of two topologically equivalent foliations such that only one of them admits two...

    Several illusions of vision are considered on the basis of a neurophysiological holographic model of visual perception at the level of the eye’s and the retina. It is suggested that the eye’s optical system forms a spatial spectrum of the observed object rather than its image on...
