This book describes and gives applications of an important new tool in the study of complex analytic hypersurface singularities: the Lรช cycles of the hypersurface. The Lรช cycles and their multiplicities - the Lรช numbers - provide effectively calculable data which generalizes the Milnor number of an isolated singularity to the case of singularities of arbitrary dimension. The Lรช numbers control many topological and geometric properties of such non-isolated hypersurface singularities. This book is intended for graduate students and researchers interested in complex analytic singularities
