An elementary approach to the Gauss hypergeometric function,
Josai Mathematical Monographs 6 (2013), 323.
 abstract:
We give an introduction to the Gauss hypergeometric function, the
hypergeometric equation and their properties in an elementary way.
Moreover we explicitly and uniformly describe the connection
coefficients, the reducibility of the equation and
the monodromy group of the solutions.

Quantization of linear algebra and its application to integral geometry,
(with H. Oda), Geometric Analysis and Integral Geometry, Contemporary Mathematics
598 (2013), 189208.
 abstract:
In order to construct good generating systems of twosided ideals in the universal enveloping
algebra of a complex reductive Lie algebra, we quantize some notions of linear algebra, such
as minors, elementary divisors, and minimal polynomials. The resulting systems are applied to
the integral geometry on various homogeneous spaces of related real Lie groups.

A classification of roots of symmetric KacMoody root systems and its application,
(with K. Hiroe), Symmetries, Integral Systems and Representations,
Springer Proceedings of Mathematics and Statics 40 (2012), 195241.
 abstract:
We study Weyl group orbits in symmetric KacMoody root systems and show a finiteness of orbits of
roots with a fixed index.
We apply this result to the Euler transform of linear ordinary differential equations on the Riemann
sphere whose singular points are regular singular or unramified irregular singular points.

Finite multiplicity theorems
(with T. Kobayashi), Adv. Math. 248 (2013), 912944.
 abstract:
We find upper and lower bounds of the multiplicities of irreducible admissible representations
of a semisimple Lie group occurring in the induced pepresentations from irreducible
represenations of a closed subgroup. We give geometric criteria for the finiteness of the
multiplicities.

Boundary value problems on Riemannian Symmetric Spaces of the noncompact Type
(with N. Shimeno), Lie Groups: Structure, Actions, and Representations, Progress in Mathematics,
307 (2013), 273308, Birkhäuser
 abstract:
We characterize the image of the Poisson transform on each distinguished boundary of
a Riemannian symmetric space of noncompact type by a system of differential equations.

Fractional calculus of Weyl algebra and Fuchsian differential equations,
MSJ Memoirs 28, ixi+203 pages, 2012,
Correction (older version: arXiv:1102.2792v1).
Corrections for UTMS 20115, Feb. 24, 2011.
 abstract:
We give a unified interpretation of confluence, reducibility, contiguity
relation and Katz's middle convolutions for linear ordinary differential
equations with polynomial coefficients and their generalization
to partial differential equations.
The integral representation and series expansion of their solutions
are also within our interpretation.
As applications to Fuchsian differential equations on
the Riemann sphere, we construct a universal model of
Fuchsian differential equations with a given spectral type,
in particular, we construct single ordinary differential
equations without apparent singularities corresponding to
the rigid local systems, whose existence was an open problem
presented by Katz.
Furthermore we obtain an explicit solution of the
connection problem for the rigid Fuchsian differential
equations.
We give many examples calculated by our fractional calculus.

HeckmanOpdam hypergeometric functions and their specializations,
RIMS Kokyuroku Bessatsu B20 (2010), 129162 (with N. Shimeno),
 abstract:
We discuss three topics, confluence, restrictions and real forms for the HeckmanOpdam
hypergeometric functions.

Katz's middle convolution and Yokoyama's extending operation,
arXiv:0812.1135, 18 pages, 2008.
 abstract:
We give a concrete relation between Katz's middle convolution and Yokoyama's
extension and show the equivalence of both algorithms using these operations
for the reduction of Fuchsian systems.

Classification of Fuchsian systems and their connection problem,
arXiv:0811.2916, 29 pages, 2008, to appear in RIMS Kokyuroku Bessatsu.
 abstract:
We review the DeligneSimpson problem, a combinatorial structure of middle convolutions
and their relation to a KacMoody root system discovered by CrawleyBoevey.
We show with examples that middle convolutions transform the Fuchsian systems with a
fixed number of accessory parameters into fundamental systems whose spectral type is in
a finite set and we give an explicit connection formula for solutions of Fuchsian
differential equations without moduli.

 A classification of subsystems of a root system,
preprint, 47pp, 2006, math.RT/0611904, submitted.
 abstract:
We classify isomorphic classes of the homomorphisms of a root system
$\Xi$ to a root system $\Sigma$ which keep Cartan integers invariant.
We examine different types of isomorphic classes defined by the Weyl group of
$\Sigma$, that of $\Xi$ and the automorphisms of $\Sigma$ or $\Xi$ etc.
We also distinguish the subsystem generated by a subset of a fundamental system.
We introduce the concept of the dual pair for root systems which helps
the study of the action of the outer automorphism of $\Xi$ on the homomorphisms.
 Commuting differential operators with regular singurarities,
(preprint, 30pp, 2006, math.AP/0611899),
Algebraic Analysis of Differential Equations
 from Microlocal Analysis to Exponential Asymptotics 
Festschrift in Honor of Takahiro Kawai SpringerVerlag, Tokyo, 2007. 195224.
 abstract:
We study a system of partial differential equations defined by
commuting family of differential operators with regular singularities.
We construct ideally analytic solutions depending on a holomorphic parameter.
We give some explicit examples of differential operators related
to $SL(n,\mathbb R)$ and completely integrable quantum systems.
 Completely integrable systems associated with
classical root systems, (2005, preprint),
mathph/0502028, SIGMA 3(2007), 061, 50pages,
 abstract:
We explicitly construct sufficient integrals of completely integrable quantum and classical systems associated with classical root systems, which include CalogeroMoserSutherland models, Inozemtsev models and Toda finite lattices with boundary conditions. We also discuss the classification of the completely integrable systems.
 A class of completely integrable quantum systems associated with
classical root systems, (19pp, preprint,
2004), Indag. Mathem. 16(2005), 655677.
 abstract: We classify the completely integrable systems associated

 Minimal polynomials and annihilators of generalized Verma modules of the
scalar type, (56pp, UTMS 20043, DVI file,
PDF file), Journal of Lie Theory 16(2006), 155219
(with H. Oda).
 abstract: We calculate the minimal polynomial associated to the pair of
any finite dimensional representation of any semisimple Lie algebra and a
generarized Verma module of the scalar type of the Lie algebra.
Using this minimal polynomial, we give a generator system of a generalized Verma
module of the scalar type. In the classical limit, it gives the generator system
of the defining ideal of a coadjoint orbit.

abstract:
We construct a generator system of the annihilator of a Verma mudule of a classical
reductive Lie algebra induced from a character of a parabolic subalgebra as an analogue
of the minimal polynomial of a matrix. In a classical limit it gives a generator system
of the defining ideal of any semisimple coadjoint orbit of the Lie algerba.  A quantization of conjugacy classes of matrices, 16pp, preprint, UTMS, 200038,
DVI file, PDF file. Adv. in Math. 196(2005), 124146.
 abstract: We construct a generator system of the annihilator of a generalized
Verma module of $\mathfrak {gl}(n,\mathbb C)$ induced from any character of any parabolic
subalgebra as an analogue of minors and elementary divisors. The generator system has a
quantization parameter $\epsilon$ and it generates the defining ideal of the conjugacy
class of square matrices at the classical limit $\epsilon=0$.

 Generalized Capelli identities and boundary value problems for GL(n) ,
Structure of Solutions of Differential Equations, Katata/Kyoto 1995, 307335, World
Scientific, 1996.
 abstract: The Capelli identity is extended to the case of minors. The operators
appearing in the generalized identities give the annihilator of the degenerate principal
series for $GL(n)$ and characterizes the image of the Poisson transform of the
hyperfunctions on several boundaries of $GL(n)$. Hypergeometric functions are defined
through realizations of some special sections of the degenerate principal series and the
realizations on boundaries of $GL(n)$ generalize Gelfand's hypergeometric functions.
Related Radon transforms for Grassmannians are discussed.

 abstract: We study the family of commuting differential operators invariant under
