A. Némethi and A. Zaharia have defined the explicit set for a complex polynomial function f: Cn → C and conjectured that the bifurcation set of the global fibration of f is given by the union of the set of critical values and the explicit set of f. They have proved only the case n = 2 and f is Newton non-degenerate. In the present paper we will prove this for the case n = 2, containing the Newton degenerate case, by using toric modifications and give an expression of the bifurcation set of f in the words of Newton polygons.
