## Abstract

Let $f,g$ be two germs of holomorphic functions on $C_{n}$ such that $f$ is smooth at the origin and $(f,g)$ deﬁnes an analytic complete intersection $(Z,0)$ of codimension two. We study Bernstein polynomials of $f$ associated with sections of the local cohomology module with support in $X=g_{−1}(0)$, and in particular some sections of its minimal extension. When $(X,0)$ and $(Z,0)$ have an isolated singularity, this may be reduced to the study of a minimal polynomial of an endomorphism on a ﬁnite dimensional vector space. As an application, we give an effective algorithm to compute those Bernstein polynomials when $f$ is a coordinate and $g$ is non-degenerate with respect to its Newton boundary.
