Michio Kuga (道郎 久賀 1928 - 13 February 1990?) was a mathematician who received his Ph.D. from University of Tokyo in 1960. His work helped lead to a proof of the Ramanujan conjecture which partly follows from the proof of the Weil conjectures by Deligne (1974).
One of his books, Galois' Dream: Group Theory and Differential Equations, is a series of lectures on group theory and differential equations for undergraduate students, considering such topics as covering spaces and Fuchsian differential equations from the point of view of Galois theory, though it does not treat classical Galois theory of polynomials and fields in depth.
