REU 1992: Igusa's local zeta function
(M. Robinson)

The REU project for 1992 directed by Margaret Robinson investigated the following topic:

The student participants were:


The group produced the following paper.

R. Field, V. Gargeya, M. Robinson, F. Schoenberg, and R. Scott, The Igusa Local Zeta Function for $x^m+y^n$

Abstract: This paper provides specific results on the Igusa local zeta function for the curves $x^m +y^n$. In addition to these results, we give an introduction to $p$-adic analysis and a discussion of various methods which have been used to compute these local zeta functions.
