Connection formulas relating Frobenius solutions of linear ODEs at different Fuchsian singular points can be expressed in terms of the large order asymptotics of the corresponding power series. We demonstrate that for the usual, confluent and reduced confluent Heun equation, the series expansion of the relevant asymptotic amplitude in a suitable parameter can be systematically computed to arbitrary order. This allows to check a recent conjecture of Bonelli-Iossa-Panea Lichtig-Tanzini expressing…

Quasinormal Modes from Penrose Limits

We use Penrose limits to approximate quasinormal modes with large real frequencies. The Penrose limit associates a plane wave to a region of spacetime near a null geodesic. This plane wave can be



Confluent conformal blocks and the Teukolsky master equation

Quasinormal modes of usual, four dimensional, Kerr black holes are described by certain solutions of a confluent Heun differential equation. In this work, we express these solutions in terms of the

Classical conformal blocks and Painlevé VI

A bstractWe study the classical c → ∞ limit of the Virasoro conformal blocks. We point out that the classical limit of the simplest nontrivial null-vector decoupling equation on a sphere leads to the

Liouville Correlation Functions from Four-Dimensional Gauge Theories

We conjecture an expression for the Liouville theory conformal blocks and correlation functions on a Riemann surface of genus g and n punctures as the Nekrasov partition function of a certain class

Tau-Functions and Monodromy Symplectomorphisms

We derive a new Hamiltonian formulation of Schlesinger equations in terms of the dynamical r-matrix structure. The corresponding symplectic form is shown to be the pullback, under the monodromy map,

Quantization of the Hitchin moduli spaces, Liouville theory, and the geometric Langlands correspondence I

We discuss the relation between Liouville theory and the Hitchin integrable system, which can be seen in two ways as a two step process involving quantization and hyperkaehler rotation. The modular

Classical conformal blocks and accessory parameters from isomonodromic deformations

A bstractClassical conformal blocks appear in the large central charge limit of 2D Virasoro conformal blocks. In the AdS3/CFT2 correspondence, they are related to classical bulk actions and used to

The goal of this note is to show that the Riemann–Hilbert problem to find multivalued analytic functions with $${{\rm SL}(2,\mathbb{C})}$$SL(2,C)-valued monodromy on Riemann surfaces of genus zero

Isomonodromy, Painlevé transcendents and scattering off of black holes

A bstractWe apply the method of isomonodromy to study the scattering of a generic Kerr-NUT-(A)dS black hole. For generic values of the charges, the problem is related to the connection problem of the
