It is well known that numerical quantities arising from the theory of D-modulesare related to invariants of singularities in birational geometry. This paper surveysa deeper relationship between the two areas, where the numerical connections areenhanced to sheaf theoretic constructions facilitated by the theory of mixed Hodgemodules. The emphasis is placed on the recent theory of Hodge ideals.
