Ebook Description

In 2011 Lemahieu and Van Proeyen proved the Monodromy Conjecture for the local topological zeta function of a non-degenerate surface singularity. The authors start from their work and obtain the same result for Igusa's $p$-adic and the motivic zeta function. In the $p$-adic case, this is, for a polynomial $f\in\mathbf{Z}[x,y,z]$ satisfying $f(0,0,0)=0$ and non-degenerate with respect to its Newton polyhedron, we show that every pole of the local $p$-adic zeta function of $f$ induces an eigenvalue of the local monodromy of $f$ at some point of $f^{-1}(0)\subset\mathbf{C}^3$ close to the origin. Essentially the entire paper is dedicated to proving that, for $f$ as above, certain candidate poles of Igusa's $p$-adic zeta function of $f$, arising from so-called $B_1$-facets of the Newton polyhedron of $f$, are actually not poles. This turns out to be much harder than in the topological setting. The combinatorial proof is preceded by a study of the integral points in three-dimensional fundamental parallelepipeds. Together with the work of Lemahieu and Van Proeyen, this main result leads to the Monodromy Conjecture for the $p$-adic and motivic zeta function of a non-degenerate surface singularity.
