The discriminant, D, in the base of a miniversal deformation of an irreducible plane curve singularity, is partitioned according to the genus of the (singular) fibre, or, equivalently, by the sum of the delta invariants of the singular points of the fibre. The members of the partition are known as the Severi strata. The smallest is the δ-constant stratum, D(δ), where the genus of the fibre is 0. It is well known, by work of Givental’ and Varchenko, to be Lagrangian with respect to the symplectic form Ω obtained by pulling back the intersection form on the cohomology of the fibre via the period mapping. We show that the remaining Severi strata are also co-isotropic with respect to Ω, and moreover that the coefficients of the expression of Ω with respect to a basis of Ω2(log D) are equations for D(δ). Similarly, the coeδcients of Ω^k with respect to a basis for Ω2k(log D) are equations for D(δ − k + 1). These equations allow us to show that for E6 and E8, D(δ) is Cohen-Macaulay (this was already shown by Givental’ for A2k ), and that, as far as we can calculate, for A2k all of the Severi strata are Cohen-Macaulay.
