Katz's middle convolution and Yokoyama's extending operation

Toshio Oshima

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 on the Riemann sphere.

Keywords: Fuchsian systems, middle convolution.

Mathematics Subject Classification: 34M35, 34M40, 34M15.
