The level crossing problem in semi-classical analysis I. The symmetric case  [ Le problème du croisement générique en analyse semi-classique I. Le cas symétrique ]
Annales de l'Institut Fourier, Tome 53 (2003) no. 4, p. 1023-1054
Nous décrivons une forme normale microlocale pour un système symétrique d'équations pseudo-différentielles dont le symbole principal est à valeurs matrices symétriques réelles ayant un croisement générique de valeurs propres. Nous utilisons cette forme normale pour décrire de façon précise les solutions mucrolocales.
We describe a microlocal normal form for a symmetric system of pseudo-differential equations whose principal symbol is a real symmetric matrix with a generic crossing of eigenvalues. We use it in order to give a precise description of the microlocal solutions.
