Lemma 33.38.6. Let $A$ be a reduced Nagata local ring of dimension $1$. The $\delta$-invariant of $A$ is the same as the $\delta$-invariant of the henselization, strict henselization, or the completion of $A$.

Proof. Let us do this in case of the completion $B = A^\wedge$; the other cases are proved in exactly the same manner. Let $A'$, resp. $B'$ be the integral closure of $A$, resp. $B$ in its total ring of fractions. Then $B' = A' \otimes _ A B$ by Lemma 33.38.5. Hence $B'/B = A'/A \otimes _ A B$. The equality now follows from Algebra, Lemma 10.52.13 and the fact that $B \otimes _ A \kappa _ A = \kappa _ B$. $\square$
