Title: Painleve' equations and AGT correspondence
Date: Fri, Jan 27, 2017, 13:15 - 14:30
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: In this talk I will introduce a correspondence relating Painleve' equations and rank 1 four-dimensional N=2 theories of class S. This correspondence, together with AGT, allows us to compute the partition function for these theories (Lagrangian and not) also around the "strong-coupling" points; at the same time, it provides explicit expressions for all the Painleve' tau-functions at short and/or large distance.
