DESCRIPTION:Title: BPS States and Geometry\nby Pietro Longhi (ETH Zurich) as part of
SISSA's Integrable Systems and Mathematical Physics seminar\n\n\nAbstract\
nThe study of BPS states in string theory and supersymmetric gauge theorie
s prompted the development of new mathematical tools to analyze geometric
properties of manifolds of various dimensions. In this talk I will introdu
ce the framework of exponential networks\, a novel approach to computing v
arious types of enumerative invariants of toric Calabi-Yau threefolds from
the geometry of Riemann surfaces. The structure behind this framework hin
ges on wall-crossing phenomena involving different kinds of BPS spectra\,
described by a synthesis of the wall-crossing formulae of Cecotti-Vafa and
Kontsevich-Soibelman inspired by work of Gaiotto-Moore-Neitzke. While pro
viding an effective way to study Donaldson-Thomas invariants\, an interest
ing byproduct of exponential networks is the prediction of unexpected rela
tions between the latter and new `3d-5d’ invariants\, as well as (for sp
ecific geometries) knot invariants.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Quantum differential equations\, isomonodromic deformations\, and deri
ved categories\nby Giordano Cotti (Lisbon) as part of SISSA's Integrab
le Systems and Mathematical Physics seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe quantum dif
ferential equation (qDE) is a rich object attached to a smooth projective
variety X. It is an ordinary differential equation in the complex domain w
hich encodes information of the enumerative geometry of X\, more precisely
its Gromov-Witten theory. Furthermore\, the asymptotic and monodromy of i
ts solutions conjecturally rules also the topology and complex geometry of
X. These differential equations were introduced in the middle of the crea
tive impetus for mathematically rigorous foundations of Topological Field
Theories\, Supersymmetric Quantum Field Theories and related Mirror Symmet
ry phenomena. Special mention has to be given to the relation between qDE'
s and Dubrovin-Frobenius manifolds\, the latter being identifiable with th
e space of isomonodromic deformation parameters of the former. The study o
f qDE's represents a challenging active area in both contemporary geometr
y and mathematical physics: it is continuously inspiring the introduction
of new mathematical tools\, ranging from algebraic geometry\, the realm of
integrable systems\, the analysis of ODE's\, to the theory of integral tr
ansforms and special functions. This talk will be a gentle introduction to
the analytical study of qDE's\, their relationship with derived categorie
s of coherent sheaves (in both non-equivariant and equivariant settings)\,
and a theory of integral representations for its solutions. The talk will
be a survey of the results of the speaker in this research area.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: (2+1)-dimensional integrable systems and moduli spaces of curves\n
by Paolo Rossi (Università degli Studi di Padova) as part of SISSA's Inte
grable Systems and Mathematical Physics seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIntegrable
systems of (1+1)-dimensional PDEs lurk in the intersection theory of modul
i spaces of stable algebraic curves\, describing the intricate relations a
mong intersection numbers. There are at least two methods to uncover them:
the Dubrovin-Zhang method and the double ramification hierarchy construct
ion\, the latter due to Buryak and myself. The power of our approach consi
sts in requiring weaker assumptions and in leading to a quantum integrable
system\, whose classical limit conjecturally recovers the Dubrovin-Zhang
result (we have proven this conjecture in a wide class of examples). In th
is talk\, after a brief general introduction\, I will use a third advantag
e of the DR construction (that\, at the classical level\, it works for inf
inite rank CohFTs as well) to apply it to the intersection theory of the m
oduli space meromorphic functions and of meromorphic differentials\, produ
cing two (2+1)-dimensional integrable systems: a version of the KdV equati
on on the Moyal torus and the celebrated KP equation.\n

t\nMirror symmetry is one of the most striking developments in modern math
ematics whose scope extends to very different\nﬁelds of pure mathematics
. It predicts a broad correspondence between two sub-ﬁelds of geometry
- symplectic geometry\nand algebraic geometry. Homological mirror symmetry
uses the language of triangulated categories to give a mathematically\npr
ecise meaning to this correspondence. Since its announcement\, by Kontsevi
ch in ICM (1994)\, it has attracted huge attention and\nover the years sev
eral important cases of it have been established. Despite signiﬁcant pr
ogress\, many central problems in\nthe ﬁeld remain open. After reviewin
g the general theory\, I will survey some of my own results on mirror symm

DESCRIPTION:Title: Universal Wave Breaking in the Semiclassical Sine-Gordon Equation\
nby Peter Miller (University of Michigan) as part of SISSA's Integrable Sy
stems and Mathematical Physics seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe sine-Gordon equa
tion has slowly-modulated librational wave solutions that are approximated
at leading-order by a Whitham averaging formalism. The Whitham modulation
equations are an elliptic quasilinear system whose solutions develop sing
ularities in finite time. We show that when the solution of the Whitham sy
stem develops a generic type of gradient catastrophe singularity\, the sol
ution of the sine-Gordon equation locally takes on a universal form\, inde
pendent of initial data and described in terms of the real tritronquée so
lution of the Painlevé-I equation and a two-parameter family of exact sol
utions of sine-Gordon that represent space-time localized defects on an ot
herwise periodic background wave. This is joint work with Bing-Ying Lu.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: On the characteristic polynomial of the Gaussian β-ensemble\nby G
aultier Lambert as part of SISSA's Integrable Systems and Mathematical Phy
sics seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe Gaussian β-ensemble is one of the central
model in random matrix theory. Because of its integrable structure\, it a
llows to describe several universal limiting laws of the eigenvalues of ra
ndom matrices. For instance\, in a seminal work\, Ramirez-Rider-Virag cons
tructed the Airy-β process\, the scaling limit of the eigenvalues near th
e spectral edge of the Gaussian β-ensemble and gave a new representation
for the Tracy-Widom distributions.\nIn this talk\, I intend to review this
construction and present recent results on the asymptotics for the charac
teristic polynomial of the Gaussian β-ensemble obtained jointly with Elli
ot Paquette (McGill University). Our results rely on a new approach to stu
dy the characteristic polynomial based on its recurrence.\n

Govind Menon (Brown) as part of SISSA's Integrable Systems and Mathematic

aps with branching\, such as Diffusion Limited Aggregation (DLA) were sugg
ested by physicists in the 1980s. Despite spectacular numerical simulation
s\, there are few rigorous mathematical results in the area.\n\nI will dis
cuss a new form of stochastic Loewner evolution that is designed for the s
tudy of such processes. The main new idea is to use Dyson Brownian motion\
, coupled with natural branching rules\, as the driving measure of a Loewn
er evolution. The main advantage of this method is that yields new stochas
tic PDE as a scaling limit.\n\nThis is joint work with Vivian Olsiewski-He

/a>\nby Danilo Lewanski (Paris) as part of SISSA's Integrable Systems and

hought as an algorithm that generates recursively solutions of certain enu
merative geometric problems. It does arise from matrix models\, although i
t does not necessarily need one to be run. On the other hand\, it provides
a system of cohomology classes on the moduli spaces of curves (often a co
homological field theory). It certainly connects with integrable hierarchi
es although\, despite several results and conjectures\, the general theory
remains open. We will review and connect some recent results in the field
\, especially about Hurwitz theory and Masur-Veech volumes.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: The quantum Witten-Kontsevich series.\nby Xavier Blot (Weizmann I

ting series of intersection numbers on the moduli space of curves. In 2016
\, Buryak\, Dubrovin\, Guéré and Rossi defined an extension of this se
ries using a quantization of the KdV hierarchy based on the geometry of do
uble ramification cycle in M_{g\,n}. This series\, the quantum Witten-Kons
tevich series\, depends on a quantum parameter. When this quantum paramete
r vanishes\, the quantum Witten-Kontsevich series restricts to the Witten-
Kontsevich series. In this talk\, we will first construct the quantum Witt
en-Kontsevich series and then present all the known results about its coef
ficients. Surprisingly\, a part of these coefficients are expressed in ter

rt of SISSA's Integrable Systems and Mathematical Physics seminar\n\n\nAbs
tract\nIn the past five years\, a surge of new techniques from different a
reas of mathematics and physics led to a rigorous study of the tau-functio
ns of isomonodromic systems on a Riemann sphere and in particular\, the Pa
inlevé equations. We know that the tau-functions of Painlevé VI\, V\, I
II can be described as a Fredholm determinant of a combination of Toeplitz
operators called Widom constants and as a series of Conformal blocks or N
ekrasov functions\, the tau-function of Painlevé II can be written as a F
redholm determinant of an integrable operator\, and the tau-function of Pa
inlevé I is described by the discrete Fourier transform of the topologica
l recursion partition function for a family of elliptic curves.\n\n\nIn th
is talk I will show that the isomonodromic tau-function on a torus with Fu
chsian singularities and generic monodromies can be written as a Fredholm
determinant of Cauchy-Plemelj operators\, and its minor expansion is a com
binatorial series labeled by charged tuples of Young diagrams. The simples
t example in this setting is a torus with one puncture associated to the f
ormulation of the Painlevé VI equation as a time-dependent Hamiltonian sy
stem with an elliptic potential\, the time being the modular parameter of
the torus. I will show that the isomonodromic tau-function of such a syste
m is a Fredholm determinant described solely by hypergeometric functions\,
and its combinatorial expression takes the form of a dual Nekrasov-Okounk
ov partition function with a non-zero total charge.\n

escribe a relation between the Givental group of rank one and the Heisenbe

only a two-parameter family of the Givental operators can be identified w
ith elements of the Heisenberg-Virasoro symmetry group. This family descri
bes triple Hodge integrals satisfying the Calabi-Yau condition. Using the
identification of the elements of two groups it is possible to prove that
the generating function of triple Hodge integrals satisfying the Calabi-Ya

y. This generalizes the result of Kazarian on KP integrability in the case
of linear Hodge integrals. I will also describe the relation of this fami

construct a tau cover of the generalized Drinfeld-Sokolov hierarchy associ
ated to an arbitrary affine Kac-Moody algebra \nwith gradations $s\\le 1$
and derive its Virasoro symmetries. By imposing the Virasoro constraints w
e obtain solutions of the Drinfeld-Sokolov \nhierarchy of Witten-Kontsevic
h and of Brezin-Gross-Witten types\, and of those characterized by certain
ordinary differential equations of \nPainleve type. We also show the exis
tence of affine Weyl group actions on solutions of such ordinary different
ial equations\, which generalizes \nthe theory of Noumi and Yamada on affi
ne Weyl group symmetries of the Painlev\\'e type equations.\n
