We study the topology of the fibers of real analytic maps R-n -> R-p, n > p, in a neighborhood of a critical point. We first prove that every real analytic map-germ f : R-n -> R-p, p >= 1, with arbitrary critical set, has a Manor Le type fibration away from the discriminant. Now assume also that f has the Thom ay-property, and its zero-locus has positive dimension. Also consider another real anal tic map-germ g : R-n -> R-k with an isolated critical point at the origin. We have Milnor Le type fibrations for f and for (f, g) : R-n -> Rp+k, and we prove for these the analogous of the classical Le-Greuel formula, expressing the difference of the Euler characteristics of the fibers F-f and F-f,F-g in terms of an invariant associated to these maps. This invariant can be expressed in various ways: as the index of the gradient vector field of a map fj on Er associated to g; as the number of critical points of (g) over tilde on F-f; or in terms of polar multiplicities. When p = 1 and k = 1, this invariant can also be expressed algebraically, as the signature of a certain bilinear form. When the germs of f and (f, g) are both isolated complete intersection singularities, we exhibit an even deeper relation between the topology of the fibers Ff and F2,9, and construct in this setting, an integer-valued invariant, that we call the curvatura integra that picks up the Euler characteristic of the fibers. This invariant, and its name, spring from Gauss' theorem, and its generalizations by Hord and Kervaire, expressing the Euler characteristic of a manifold (with some conditions) as the degree of a certain map.
