Calculating Milnor Numbers and Versal Component Dimensions from P-Resolution Fans
We use Altmann’s toric fan description of P-resolutions  to formulate a new description of deformation theory invariants for two-dimensional cyclic quotient singularities. In particular, we show how to calculate the dimensions of the (reduced) versal base space components as well as Milnor numbers of smoothings over them.
