  2. Reconstruction of differential equations from their solutions. Riemann theorem.
  3. Regular and Fuchsian operators. Complete local reducibility. Fuchs theorem (local regularity \iff local Fuchs property) and its reformulations.

Recommended reading: Section 19 from the book (printing disabled)
