Hypergeometric periods for a tame polynomial. (English) Zbl 1113.14011
The author considers the Gauss-Manin system (GMS) of differential equations attached to a regular function satisfying a tameness assumption on a smooth affine variety over \({\mathbb C}\) (e.g. a tame polynomial on \({\mathbb C}^{n+1}\), i.e. a polynomial \(f\) for which one has \(\| \partial f\| \geq \varepsilon\) outside some compact \(K\) for some \(\varepsilon >0\)). The author considers also the Fourier transform of the GMS. He solves the Birkhoff problem and proves Hodge-type results analogous to those concerning germs of isolated hypersurface singularities.
