## Abstract

Consider a linear action of the group C∗ on X = C^{n+1}. We study the fundamental algebraic properties of the sheaves of invariant and basic differential forms for such an action, and use these to define an algebraic notion of multiplicity for critical points of functions which are invariant under the C∗-action. We also prove a theorem relating the cohomology of the Milnor fibre of the critical point on the quotient space with this algebraic multiplicity. We also include an appendix showing how to use Cech complexes to compute local cohomology.
