Abstract: Let $ R$ be a complete two-dimensional integrally closed analytic $ k$-algebra. Associated with $ R$ is the Auslander module $ A$ from the fundamental sequence $ 0 \to {\omega _R} \to A \to R \to k \to 0$ and the module of Zariski differentials $ {D_k}{(R)^{ * * }}$. We conjecture that these modules are isomorphic if and only if $ R$ is graded. We prove this conjecture for (a) hypersurfaces $ f = X_3^n + {\text{g}}({X_1},{X_2})$, (b) quotient singularities, and (c) $ R$ graded Gorenstein.
