Fredholm Determinants, Jimbo-Miwa-Ueno τ-Functions, and Representation Theory

Alexei Borodin, Percy Deift

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The authors show that a wide class of Fredholm determinants arising in the representation theory of "big" groups, such as the infinite-dimensional unitary group, solve Painlevé equations. Their methods are based on the theory of integrable operators and the theory of Riemann-Hilbert problems.
