This book, Dynamics of Surface Homeomorphisms, Topological Versions of Leau-Fatou Flower Theorem and Stable Manifold Theorem, shows that the study of the dynamics of a surface homeomorphism in the neighborhood of an isolated fixed point leads to the following results: If the fixed point index is greater than \(1\), a family of attractive and repulsive petals is constructed, generalizing the Leau-Fatou flower theorem in complex dynamics. If the index is less than \(1\), one gets a family of stable and unstable branches, generalizing the stable manifold theorem in differentiable hyperbolic dynamics.
