Such special point (like the origin) in the target space is called a ramification point of the map [phi].
6 which shows the surfaces [[SIGMA].sup.g.sub.x], [[SIGMA].sup.g.sub.x], and [[SIGMA].sup.x.sub.x]), except for the evident relation between their ramification points. However, they testify that, for each z in [C.sup.1.sub.z], there is a peculiar way of continuous coupling of elements from the fiber [[SIGMA].sup.z.sub.f] (of cardinality [less than or equal to] 3) with the elements of the [[SIGMA].sup.z.sub.g] (of cardinality [less than or equal to] 2), so that the coupling produces elements of the fiber [[SIGMA].sup.z.sub.h] (of cardinality [less than or equal to] 6)!
In this case deg([f.sub.C]) = d and because of the generality of [C, p], [f.sub.C] has to be one of the finitely many [g.sup.1.sub.d]'s having two distinct triple points and a simple ramification point at p [member of] C.
If deg([f.sub.C]) = d - 1, then [f.sub.C] is one of the a(d - 1, 2d - 5) linear series [g.sup.1.sub.d-1] on C having p as an ordinary ramification point. Since C and [member of] meet only at p, we have that deg([f.sub.E]) = 3, and [f.sub.E] corresponds to a [g.sub.1.sub.3] on E having two unspecified triple points and a simple ramification point at p.
In this paper, for g = 4, we give a global description of the subset [D.sub.Y] of Y in which the rank of the differential of [G.sup.0] drops and we show that for infinitely many Y the generic point p of [D.sub.Y] is a ramification point (cf.

In case of a statically indeterminate bars systems we divide the system in more cycle and we introduce special matrices and equations in ramification points. All the cycles must start from the same node (point), written "0".
