Abstract: In recent work, Beukers characterized $ {A}$-hypergeometric systems having a full set of algebraic solutions. He accomplished this by (1) determining which $ {A}$-hypergeometric systems have a full set of polynomial solutions modulo $ p$ for almost all primes $ p$ and (2) showing that these systems come from geometry. He then applied a fundamental theorem of N. Katz, which says that such systems have a full set of algebraic solutions. In this paper we establish some connections between nonresonant $ A$-hypergeometric systems and de Rham-type complexes, which leads to a determination of which $ A$-hypergeometric systems come from geometry. We do not use the fact that the system is irreducible or find integral formulas for its solutions.
