. We derive a formula for the connected n -point functions of a tau- function of the BKP hierarchy in terms of its aﬃne coordinates. This is a BKP-analogue of a formula for KP tau-functions proved by Zhou in [46]. Moreover, we prove a simple relation between the KP-aﬃne coordinates of a tau-function τ ( t ) of the KdV hierarchy and the BKP-aﬃne coordinates of τ ( t / 2). As applications, we present a new algorithm to compute the free energies of the Witten-Kontsevich tau-function and the Br…
