In this paper we consider from the point of view of differential geometry and of the theory of integrable systems the so-called WDVV equations as defining relations of 2-dimensional topological field theory. A complete classification of massive topological con-formal field theories (TCFT) is obtained in terms of monodromy data of an auxillary linear… (More)

We compute the genus one correction to the integrable hierarchy describing coupling to gravity of a 2D topological field theory. The bihamiltonian structure of the hierarchy is given by a classical W-algebra; we compute the central charge of this algebra. We also express the generating function of elliptic Gromov-Witten invariants via tau-function of the… (More)

We study the global analytic properties of the solutions of a particular family of Painlevé VI equations with the parameters β = γ = 0, δ = 1 2 and α arbitrary. We introduce a class of solutions having critical behaviour of algebraic type, and completely compute the structure of the analytic continuation of these solutions in terms of an auxiliary… (More)

Hamiltonian perturbations of the simplest hyperbolic equation u t + a(u)u x = 0 are studied. We argue that the behaviour of solutions to the perturbed equation near the point of gradient catastrophe of the unperturbed one should be essentially independent on the choice of generic perturbation neither on the choice of generic solution. Moreover, this… (More)

For an arbitrary Frobenius manifold a system of Virasoro constraints is constructed. In the semisimple case these constraints are proved to hold true in the genus one approximation. Particularly, the genus ≤ 1 Virasoro conjecture of T. and of S.Katz is proved for smooth projective varieties having semisimple quantum cohomology.

We define certain extensions of affine Weyl groups (distinct from these considered by K. Saito [S1] in the theory of extended affine root systems), prove an analogue of Chevalley theorem for their invariants, and construct a Frobenius structure on their orbit spaces. This produces solutions F Frobenius manifold is a geometric object (see precise definition… (More)

We present a universal construction of almost duality for Frobenius man-ifolds. The analytic setup of this construction is described in details for the case of semisimple Frobenius manifolds. We illustrate the general considerations by examples from the singularity theory, mirror symmetry, the theory of Coxeter groups and Shephard groups, from the… (More)

We present the Lax pair formalism for certain extension of the continuous limit of the classical Toda lattice hierarchy, provide a well defined notion of tau function for its solutions, and give an explicit formulation of the relationship between the CP 1 topological sigma model and the extended Toda hierarchy. We also establish an equivalence of the latter… (More)
