Integrable Systems and Random Matrix Theory Seminar

From Painlevé functions to Heun accessory parameters and back

The reconstruction of linear ODEs from their monodromy leads to two interesting classes of special functions: Heun accessory parameters (for the simplest 2nd order scalar ODEs) and Painlevé functions (for the simplest 1st order 2 by 2 linear systems). I will discuss several approaches to computation of these functions, such as Hill and Widom determinant, continued fractions and combinatorial series. After recalling a classical relation between Heun and Painlevé equations, I will explain how it leads to identities expressing Heun accessory parameters in terms of Painlevé functions and vice versa.
