Masaki Kashiwara is a Japanese mathematician. He made substantial contributions to the theory of pseudodifferential operators, hyperfunctions and microlocal analysis, study of D-modules, holonomic systems, Riemann-Hilbert problem, categories of constructible sheaves and representation theory. He invented crystal bases? and crystals in Lie and quantum group theory.
