Description

We will present the essentials of Loeser and Sabbah's theory of the Mellin transform for D-modules. It is a fundamental ingredient in our work with Bogner, Klausen and Panzer on Feynman integral relations from parametric annihilators. In particular, for a holonomic D-module M, we will express the dimension of its Mellin transform as the Euler characteristic of M. We will not assume any prior knowledge of D-module theory, so the talk should be accessible to non-specialists.
