Some of the main results of reference [12], concerning non-generic isomonodromy deformations of a certain linear differential system with irregular singularity and coalescing eigenvalues, are reviewed from the point of view of Pfaffian systems, making a distinction between weak and strong isomonodromic deformations. Such distinction has a counterpart in the case of Fuchsian systems, which is well known as Schlesinger and non-Schlesinger deformations, reviewed in the Appendix.

We consider deformations of a differential system with Poincaré rank 1 at infinity and Fuchsian singularity at zero along a stratum of a coalescence locus. We give necessary and sufficient conditions

On the universality of integrable deformations of solutions of degenerate Riemann-Hilbert-Birkhoff problems

This paper addresses the classification problem of integrable deformations of solutions of “degenerate” Riemann–Hilbert–Birkhoff (RHB) problems. These consist of those RHB problems whose initial

Isomonodromic deformations of systems of linear differential equations with irregular singularities

An isomonodromic deformation of a linear system of differential equations with irregular singularities is considered. A theorem on the general form of a differential 1-form describing such a

Non-Schlesinger deformations of ordinary differential equations with rational coefficients

We consider deformations of 2×2 and 3×3 matrix linear ODEs with rational coefficients with respect to singular points of Fuchsian type which do not satisfy the well known system of Schlesinger

Deformations of Fuchsian Systems of Linear Differential Equations and the Schlesinger System

We consider holomorphic deformations of Fuchsian systems parameterized by the pole loci. It is well known that, in the case when the residue matrices are non-resonant, such a deformation is

Analytic geometry of semisimple coalescent Frobenius structures

We present some results of a joint paper with Dubrovin (see references), as exposed at the Workshop “Asymptotic and Computational Aspects of Complex Differential Equations” at the CRM in Pisa, in

Local Moduli of Semisimple Frobenius Coalescent Structures

We extend the analytic theory of Frobenius manifolds to semisimple points with coalescing eigenvalues of the operator of multiplication by the Euler vector field. We clarify which freedoms,


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

General linear problem of the isomonodromic deformation of Fuchsian systems

In contrast to nonresonance systems whose continuous deformations are always Schlesinger deformations, systems with resonances provide great possibilities for deformations. In this case, the number

Deformations with a Resonant Irregular Singularity

I review topics of my talk in Alcala, inspired by the paper [1]. An isomonodromic system with irregular singularity at \(z=\infty \) (and Fuchsian at \(z=0\)) is considered, such that \(z=\infty \)

Results on the extension of isomonodromy deformations to the case of a resonant irregular singularity

We explain some results of [G. Cotti, B. A. Dubrovin and D. Guzzetti, Isomonodromy deformations at an irregular singularity with coalescing eigenvalues, preprint (2017); arXiv:1706.04808 .],
