- Recommended preliminaries and reading:
Familiarity with fundamental algebraic geometry, roughly at the level of Hartshorne's book. Some basic familiarity with D-modules, as in Chapters 1-3 in the book by Hotta-Takeuchi-Tanisaki "D-modules, perverse sheaves, and representation theory", would be very helpful. I have posted notes that I wrote for a quite different version of this course as a link on my webpage. What I will need from those are some basic facts about the Bernstein-Sato polynomial and about the V-filtration on D-modules, found in Chapters 1 and 2. (I will review those, however briefly and without proofs.) I will
indicate further sources as we go along, and will likely post lecture notes.
