If you have a question about this talk, please contact Christopher Brookes. Building on earlier work of Mustata, we present a construction in noncommutative nonnoetherian algebra that should be understood as a positive characteristic analogue of the b-function. Recall that the b-function or Bernstein-Sato polynomial is a polynomial in one variable attached to an analytic function f. It is a fundamental object in D-module theory and is well-known to be related to the singularities of f. We will start by briefly recalling the complex theory.
