We use Heegaard Floer homology to study smooth cobordisms of algebraic knots and complex deformations of cusp singularities of curves. The main tool will be the concordance invariant : we study its behaviour with respect to connected sums, providing an explicit formula in the case of –space knots and proving subadditivity in general.
