Introduction to Plane Curve Singularities. Toric Resolution Tower and Puiseux Pairs
We give an elementary introduction of the toric modification, using an irreducible plane curve germ. We explain also the relation between the tower of the toric modifications which gives a resolution of the curve and the Puiseux pairs.
