## Abstract

Let *P*(*z*, ∂) be a linear partial differential operator with holomorphic coefficients in a neighborhood Ω of *z* = 0 in ℂ_d_+1. Consider the equation *P*(*z*, ∂)*u*(*z*) = *f*(*z*), where *u*(*z*) admits singularities on the surface *K* = {_z_0 = 0} and *f*(*z*) has an asymptotic expansion of Gevrey type with respect to _z_0 as _z_0 → 0. We study the possibility of asymptotic expansion of *u*(*z*). We define the characteristic polygon of *P*(*z*, ∂) with respect to *K* and characteristic indices. We discuss the behavior of *u*(*z*) in a neighborhood of *K*, by using these notions. The main result is a generalization of that in [6].
