This is a brief survey of the main results of the theory of elliptic hypergeometric functions -- a new class of special functions of mathematical physics. A proof is given of the most general known univariate exact integration formula generalizing Euler's beta integral. It is called the elliptic beta integral. An elliptic analogue of the Gauss hypergeometric function is constructed together with the elliptic hypergeometric equation for it. Biorthogonality relations for this function and its… 

Introduction to the Theory of Elliptic Hypergeometric Integrals

We give a brief account of the key properties of elliptic hypergeometric integrals—a relatively recently discovered top class of transcendental special functions of hypergeometric type. In

Aspects of elliptic hypergeometric functions

General elliptic hypergeometric functions are defined by elliptic hypergeometric integrals. They comprise the elliptic beta integral, elliptic analogues of the Euler-Gauss hypergeometric function and

Basic Hypergeometric Functions as Limits of Elliptic Hypergeometric Functions

We describe a uniform way of obtaining basic hypergeometric functions as limits of the elliptic beta integral. This description gives rise to the construction of a polytope with a different basic

Elliptic Hypergeometric Laurent Biorthogonal Polynomials with a Dense Point Spectrum on the Unit Circle

Using the technique of the elliptic Frobenius determinant, we construct new elliptic solutions of theQD-algorithm. These solutions can be interpreted as elliptic solutions of the discrete-time Toda

Elliptic Hypergeometry of Supersymmetric Dualities

We give a full list of known $${\mathcal{N}=1}$$ supersymmetric quantum field theories related by the Seiberg electric-magnetic duality conjectures for SU(N), SP(2N) and G2 gauge groups. Many of the

A noncommutative weight-dependent generalization of the binomial theorem

A weight-dependent generalization of the binomial theorem for noncommuting variables is presented. This result extends the well-known binomial theorem for q-commuting variables by a generic weight

Yang–Baxter equation, parameter permutations, and the elliptic beta integral

This paper presents a construction of an infinite-dimensional solution of the Yang–Baxter equation of rank 1 which is represented as an integral operator with an elliptic hypergeometric kernel acting

New Elliptic Solutions of the Yang–Baxter Equation

We consider finite-dimensional reductions of an integral operator with the elliptic hypergeometric kernel describing the most general known solution of the Yang–Baxter equation with a rank 1 symmetry



Determinants of elliptic hypergeometric integrals

We start from an interpretation of the BC2-symmetric “Type I” (elliptic Dixon) elliptic hypergeometric integral evaluation as a formula for a Casoratian of the elliptic hypergeometric equation and

Limits of elliptic hypergeometric integrals

Abstract In Ann. Math., to appear, 2008, the author proved a number of multivariate elliptic hypergeometric integrals. The purpose of the present note is to explore more carefully the various

Continuous biorthogonality of the elliptic hypergeometric function

We construct a family of continuous biorthogonal functions related to an elliptic analogue of the Gauss hypergeometric function. The key tools used for that are the elliptic beta integral and the

Theta hypergeometric integrals

We define a general class of (multiple) integrals of hypergeometric type associated with the Jacobi theta functions. These integrals are related to theta hypergeometric series through the residue

Abstract The elliptic gamma function is a generalization of the Euler gamma function and is associated to an elliptic curve. Its trigonometric and rational degenerations are the Jackson q-gamma

Transformations of elliptic hypergeometric integrals

We prove a pair of transformations relating elliptic hypergeometric integrals of different dimensions, corresponding to the root systems BC_n and A_n; as a special case, we recover some integral

Modular Hypergeometric Residue Sums of Elliptic Selberg Integrals

It is shown that the residue expansion of an elliptic Selberg integral gives rise to an integral representation for a multiple modular hypergeometric series. A conjectural evaluation formula for the

Elliptic hypergeometric functions and Calogero-Sutherland-type models

We consider an elliptic analogue of the Gauss hypergeometric function and two of its multivariate generalizations. We describe their relation to elliptic beta integrals, the exceptional Weyl group
