Abstract: Golyshev and Zagier showed how, using the Frobenius method to generate inhomogeneous solutions to Picard Fuchs equations near points of maximal unipotent monodromy for certain familys of K3 surfaces, one could generate what seemed to be infinite sequences of periods. In joint work with M. Vlasenko, we study motivic gamma functions and extensions of Hodge structure associated to the Golyshev-Zagier construction.
