Abstract: Let $ X$ be the locus of common zeros of polynomials $ {f_1}, \ldots ,{f_k}$ in $ n$ complex variables. A global upper bound for the distance to $ X$ is given in the form of a Lojasiewicz inequality. The exponent in this inequality is bounded by $ {d^{\min (n,k)}}$ where $ d = \max (3,\deg {f_i})$. The estimates are also valid over an algebraically closed field of any characteristic.
