Since differentiation generally lowers exponents, it is straightforward that the ring C[x, x-1] is a finitely generated module over the ring of differential operators C[x, d/dx]. This innocent looking fact has been vastly generalized to a statement about holonomic D-modules, using the beautiful theory of Bernstein’s b-function (or Bernstein—Sato polynomial). I will give a brief overview of the classical theory before discussing some recent developments concerning a p-adic analytic analogue. This is joint work with Konstantin Ardakov and Simon Wadsley.
