Abstract: We give a formula for the Euler characteristic of the Milnor fibre of any analytic function $f$ of two variables. This formula depends on the intersection multiplicities, the Milnor numbers and the powers of the branches of the germ of the curve defined by $f.$ The goal of the formula is that it use neither the resolution nor the deformations of $f.$ Moreover, it can be use for giving an algorithm to compute it.
