Abstract
We study the existence problem for a local implicit function determined by a system of nonlinear
algebraic equations in the particular case when the determinant of its Jacobian matrix vanishes at
the point under consideration. We present a system of suÆcient conditions that implies existence of
a local implicit function as well as another system of suÆcient conditions that guarantees absence
of a local implicit function. The results obtained are applied to proving new and classical results on
exibility and rigidity of polyhedra and frameworks.
