Seminar on Algebra, Geometry and Physics (Joint work with Masha Vlasenko) In their work on the Gamma conjecture, Golyshev and Zagier introduced certain inhomogeneous Frobenius solutions defined in a neighborhood of a MUM point of a Landau model. We show in the case of the Apéry family that the variations of these inhomogeneous solutions about a nearby conifold point are periods, and the resulting generating function is a motivic gamma function in the sense of Golyshev. More generally, such solutions yield a variation of \C-Hodge structure on a punctured disk about the MUM point. This variation admits a Q-Hodge structure if the monodromy of the inhomogeneous solutions about the conifold point satisfies the Picard-Lefschetz theorem.
