Title: Introduction to Abhyankar-Jung Theorem

Abstract: Abhyankar-Jung Theorem is a multivariable generalization of 
Newton-Puiseux Theorem. It says that the roots of a polynomial 

$P(Z) = Z^d+a_1 (X) Z^{d-1}+ . . . +a_d(X)$, 

where $a_i (X)$ are complex analytic function germs of many complex 
variables $X=(X_1, …,X_n)$, are convergent fractional (i.e. with 
positive rational exponents) power series, provided the discriminant 
of $P$ is a monomial in $X$ times an analytic unit. A similar 
statement holds for formal power series over an algebraically closed 
field $K$ of characteristic zero.

In this talk we give also a constructive proof of the latter statement
by completing an old proof of Luengo. Our method can be applied to 
any Henselian local subring of $K[[X]]$ in particular to the 
quasi-analytic functions.
