Dedicated to Professor Michael Artin on the occasion of his 79th birthday It is well known that geometric genus $p_g$ and irregularity $q$ are two important invariants for isolated singularities. In this paper, we give a formula relating $p_g$ and $q$ for isolated singularities with $\mathbb{C}^*$-action in any dimension. We also give a simple characterization of the quasi-homogeneous isolated complete intersection singularities using $p_g$ and $q$ . As a corollary, we prove that q is an invariant of topological type for two-dimensional weighted homogeneous hypersurface singularities.
