abstract = {It is well-known that if r is a rational number from [-1,0), then there is no polynomial f in two complex variables and a fiber $f^\{-1\}(t₀)$ such that r is the Łojasiewicz exponent of grad(f) near the fiber $f^\{-1\}(t₀)$. We show that this does not remain true if we consider polynomials in real variables. More exactly, we give examples showing that any rational number can be the Łojasiewicz exponent near the fiber of the gradient of some polynomial in real variables.

AB - It is well-known that if r is a rational number from [-1,0), then there is no polynomial f in two complex variables and a fiber $f^{-1}(t₀)$ such that r is the Łojasiewicz exponent of grad(f) near the fiber $f^{-1}(t₀)$. We show that this does not remain true if we consider polynomials in real variables. More exactly, we give examples showing that any rational number can be the Łojasiewicz exponent near the fiber of the gradient of some polynomial in real variables. The second main result of the paper is the formula computing the Łojasiewicz exponent of the gradient near a fiber of a polynomial in two real variables. In particular, this gives, in the case of two real variables, a way to tell whether a given value is an asymptotic critical value or not.
