Abstract: For a smooth (or formal) generic submanifold $M$ of real codimension $d$ in complex space $\mathbb{C} ^N$ with $0\in M$, we introduce the notion of a formal Segre variety mapping $\gamma: (\mathbb{C} ^N\times\mathbb{C} ^{N-d},0)\to(\mathbb{C} ^N,0)$and its iterated Segre mappings at $0$, $v^j:(\mathbb{C} ^{(N-d)j},0) \to(\mathbb{C} ^N,0)$, $j\ge1$. The Segre variety mapping $\gamma$extends the notion of Segre varieties of a real-analytic generic submanifold to the setting of smooth (or formal) submanifolds. One of the main results in this paper is that $M$ is of finite type (in the sense of Kohn and Bloom-Graham) at $0$if and only if there exists $k_0\le d+1$ such that the (generic) rank of $v^{k_0}$ is $N$. More generally, we prove that $v^{k_0}$ parameterizes the local CR orbit of $M$ at $0$.
