From Painlevé III to Mathieu equation and back again
Mathematical Physics Seminar
23rd April 2021, 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Online Seminar, Zoom
I will discuss a relation between Painlevé transcendents and accessory parameters in linear 2nd order scalar ODEs equations of Mathieu type, as well as their connection to $c=1$ and $c=\infty$ conformal blocks of the Virasoro algebra.
