An Unpublished Paper
Paper 14 of my CV, "Courbes planes ayant une seule place à l'infini", is incorrectly listed as having been published in the Demazure-Pinkham-Teisser Seminar at the Ecole Polytechnique, SLN 777. This is incorrect. It was never published, as was pointed out to me by Bernard Teissier, whom I thank. So here is a scan of the original.
