Summary: We study a cohomology-valued hypergeometric series which naturally arises in the description of (local) mirror symmetry. We identify it as a central charge formula for BPS states and study its property from the viewpoint of Kontsevich’s homological mirror symmetry. In the case of local mirror symmetry, we will identify a symplectic form, and will conjecture an integral and symplectic monodromy property of a relevant hypergeometric series of Gel’fand-Kapranov-Zelevinski type.
