Multiplicity of the tensor product of $A_n$-modules

In Coutinho, A Primer of Algebraic D-Modules, Theorem 13.4.1 (p. 128), I read: Theorem. Let $M$ be a finitely generated $A_m$-module, $N$ a finitely-generated $A_n$-module. $d(M ...

Is it really unknown that every endomorphism of the Weyl algebra $A_1$ is an isomorphism?

Here $A_1 := K\{x\cdot-, \frac{d}{dx}\} \subset \operatorname{End}_K(K[x])$ for some characteristic-zero field $K$. I found this claim in Coutinho's "A Primer of Algebraic D-Modules." If this is ...

Perverse sheaves (or D-modules) on vector spaces, constructible with respect to a hyperplane arrangement

Let $V$ be a finite dimensional complex vector space and let $\mathcal{A}$ be a finite collection of hyperplanes in $V$. Stratify $V$ by the intersections of elements of $\mathcal{A}$, and consider ...

Holonomic ideals and D-finite power series

I would like to understand the connection between the term D-finite power series (in n variables) and the term of a holonomic module over the Weyl algebra A_n. A power series $f \in K[[x_1,...,x_n]]$ ...
