Generic classification of time optimal synthesis on the plane. 
Talk at Arnold's seminar 23.09.97

Abstract. We classify the time optimal stabilizing synthesis for control
systems on the plane. The control systems we consider are
defined by couples of smooth vector fields. We prove structural stability 
of the classified syntheses. This work is of the same spirit of the
classical work of Peixoto on two dimensional dynamical systems.
