We collect some information about the invariants $\lambda_{p,i}(A)$ of a commutative local ring $A$ containing a field introduced by G. Lyubeznik in 1993 (Finiteness properties of local cohomology modules, Invent. Math. 113, 41-55). We treat the cases $\dim (A)$ equal to zero, one and two, thereby answering in the negative a question raised in Lyubeznik's paper. In fact, we will show that $\lambda_{p,i}(A)$ has in the two-dimensional case a topological interpretation.
