Laurent polynomials, GKZ-hypergeometric systems and mixed Hodge modules

  • Thomas Reichelt (a1)

We endow certain GKZ-hypergeometric systems with a natural structure of a mixed Hodge module, which is compatible with the mixed Hodge module structure on the Gauß–Manin system of an associated family of Laurent polynomials. As an application we show that the underlying perverse sheaf of a GKZ-system with rational parameter has quasi-unipotent local monodromy.
