Abstract : The work is a study of the topology of the two-dimensional vector field of an analytic function of a complex variable. There is presented an analysis treating on the existence and distribution of type (b) singularities (stationary points), at points of the Euclidean complex plane. Branch points and branch cuts are also discussed. Vector field structures in the neighborhoods of these points are pictorially elucidated by means of figures showing the orthogonal systems of conjugate u,v families of curves. (Author)
