# Linkage between singularities of algebraic varieties and continued fractions

I have an impression that there is linkage or relation between singulariry of algebraic variety and continued fraction when I read some book on resolution of singularity or algebraic geometry.Could any one give some reference for that?

You can have a look at Section 2 of my paper with E. Mistretta: arxiv.org/abs/0805.1424 where the case of dimension $2$ cyclic quotient singularities is considered. Sorry for being self-referential :-) – Francesco Polizzi Apr 4 '13 at 6:55
