A coherent D X -module M whose characterstic variety has dimension dim(X) is called holonomic. Let M be a holonomic module. The involutivity of SS(M) implies that it is a conic Lagrangian analytic set in T*(X). Let {X α } be a Whitney stratification for which
$$SS(M) \subset \cup T_{{X_\alpha }}^*(X)$$
