### The Denef-Loeser series for toric surface singularities.

Let H denote the set of formal ares going through a singular point of an algebraic variety V defined over an algebraically closed field k of charactcristic zcro. In the late sixties, J, Nash has observed that for any nonnegative integer s, the set js(H) of s-jets of ares in H is a constructible subset of some affine space. Recently (1999), J. Denef and F. Loeser have proved that the Poincaré series associated with the image of js(H) in some suitable localization of the Grothendieck ring of algebraic...
