Article

Abstract

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.
