Computation of the maximum of the Villamayor stratifying function over a chart record.
Asterisks mark the case when the codimension-one part of the maximum stratum is not empty, thus the maximal function value is 'infinity'.
The maximal function value over a given chart can be considered completely computed only when the center is determined (i.e. at the point when the algorithm is about to perform a blowing up). In the intermediate stages (for instance at nodes in the HTML tree which represent cover or exchange operations) the function value is only partially computed, or some components (marked by "?") can even be undetermined.
