The aim of this article is to provide the reader with a real possibility of becoming confident that the index of an isolated umbilic point of an analytic surface is never greater than one. For a surface homeomorphic to a sphere, this means in particular that on the surface there necessarily exist at least two umbilic points as it was conjectured by Caratheodory. 
A NEW ELEMENT IN CLASSICAL SURFACE THEORY AND THE CARATHÉODORY-LOEWNER CONJECTURES
The character of the principal foliations on a smooth surface in R3 is not well understood, in particular whether there are geometric or topological restrictions on their singularities (umbilics)
THE NATURE OF ELLIPTIC SECTORS IN THE PRINCIPAL FOLIATIONS OF SURFACE THEORY
Little is known of the geometry of the principal foliations on a smooth surface in R. The unsolved Caratheodory conjecture for such a surface would follow from Bendixson’s formula, were it known that
Non-existence of elliptic sectors in the principal foliations of surface theory
The character of the principal foliations on a smooth surface in R is not well understood, in particular, whether there are geometric or topological restrictions on their singularities (umbilics)
On isolated umbilic points
Counter-examples to the famous conjecture of Caratheodory, as well as the bound on umbilic index proposed by Hamburger, are constructed with respect to Riemannian metrics that are arbitrarily close
A metric property of umbilic points
In the space of cubic forms of surfaces, regarded as a G-space and endowed with a natural invariant metric, the ratio of umbilic points with a negative index to those with a positive index is
Normal curvatures of asymptotically constant graphs and Carathéodory’s conjecture
We show that Caratheodory’s conjecture, on umbilical points of closed convex surfaces, may be reformulated in terms of the existence of at least one umbilic in the graphs of functions f : R → R whose
The index of isolated umbilics on surfaces of non-positive curvature
It is shown that if a $C^2$ surface $M\subset\mathbb R^3$ has negative curvature on the complement of a point $q\in M$, then the $\mathbb Z/2$-valued Poincar\'e-Hopf index at $q$ of either
On the Loewner Conjecture
We construct a series of examples of vectorfields relevant to the conjectures of Loewner and Caratheodory.
Global properties on spacelike submanifolds of codimension two in Minkowski space
We consider codimension two spacelike submanifolds with a parallel normal field (i.e. vanishing normal curvature) in Minkowski space. We use the analysis of their contacts with hyperplanes and
Quadratic points of surfaces in projective 3-space
Quadratic points of a surface in the projective 3-space are the points which can be exceptionally well approximated by a quadric. They are also singularities of a 3-web in the elliptic part and of
