Geometric Representation Theory for semi-simple Lie groups has two main sheaf theoretic models. Namely, through Beilinson-Bernstein localization theory, Harish-Chandra modules are related to holonomic sheaves of $\mathcal D$ modules on the flag variety. Then the (algebraic) Riemann-Hilbert correspondence relates these sheaves to constructible sheaves of complex vector spaces. On the other hand, there is a parallel localization theory for globalized Harish-Chandra modules---i.e., modules over the full semi-simple group which are completions of Harish-Chandra modules. In particular, Hecht-Taylor and Smithies have developed a localization theory relating minimal globalizations of Harish-Chandra modules to group equivariant sheaves of $\mathcal D$ modules on the flag variety. The main purpose of this paper is to develop an analytic Riemann-Hilbert correspondence relating these sheaves to constructible sheaves of complex vector spaces and to discuss the relationship between this ``analytic'' study of global modules and the preceding ``algebraic'' study of the underlying Harish-Chandra modules.
