Previous results on quasi-classical limit of the KP hierarchy and itsW-infinity symmetries are extended to the Toda hierarchy. The Planck constantħ now emerges as the spacing unit of difference operators in the Lax formalism. Basic notions, such as dressing operators, Baker-Akhiezer functions, and tau function, are redefined.W1 + ∞ symmetries of the Toda hierarchy are realized by suitable rescaling of the Date-Jimbo-Kashiara-Miwa vertex operators. These symmetries are contracted tow1… 
Quasi-classical limit of BKP hierarchy andW-infinity symmetries
Previous results on quasi-classical limit of the KP and Toda hierarchies are now extended to the BKP hierarchy. Basic tools such as the Lax representation, the Baker-Akhiezer function and the tau
Dispersionless Toda hierarchy and two-dimensional string theory
The dispersionless Toda hierarchy turns out to lie in the heart of a recently proposed Landau-Ginzburg formulation of two-dimensional string theory at self-dual compactification radius. The dynamics
Integrable hierarchies and dispersionless limit
Analogues of the KP and the Toda lattice hierarchy called dispersionless KP and Toda hierarchy are studied. Dressing operations in the dispersionless hierarchies are introduced as a canonical
q-Analogue of Modified KP Hierarchy and its Quasi-Classical Limit
A q-analogue of the tau function of the modified KP hierarchy is defined by a change of independent variables. This tau function satisfies a system of bilinear q-difference equations. These bilinear
Extended Seiberg-Witten theory and integrable hierarchy
The prepotential of the effective = 2 super-Yang-Mills theory, perturbed in the ultraviolet by the descendents ?d4??tr ??k+1 of the single-trace chiral operators, is shown to be a particular
Toda lattice hierarchy and generalized string equations
String equations of thepth generalized Kontsevich model and the compactifiedc=1 string theory are re-examined in the language of the Toda lattice hierarchy. As opposed to a hypothesis postulated in
Toda hierarchies and their applications
The 2D Toda hierarchy occupies a central position in the family of integrable hierarchies of the Toda type. The 1D Toda hierarchy and the Ablowitz-Ladik (aka relativistic Toda) hierarchy can be
Integrable hierarchies , dispersionless limit and string equations
The notion of string equations was discovered in the end of the eighties, and has been studied in the language of integrable hierarchies. String equations in the KP hierarchy are nowadays relatively


Quasiclassical limit of KP hierarchy,W-symmetries, and free fermions
This paper deals with the dispersionless KP hierarchy from the point of view of quasiclassical limit. Its Lax formalism, W-infinity symmetries, and general solutions are shown to be reproduced from
SDiff(2) Toda equation — Hierarchy, Tau function, and symmetries
A continuum limit of the Toda lattice field theory, called the SDiff(2) Toda equation, is shown to have a Lax formalism and an infinite hierarchy of higher flows. The Lax formalism is very similar to
Hamiltonian formalism of Whitham-type hierarchies and topological Landau-Ginsburg models
We show that the bi-hamiltonian structure of the averaged Gelfand-Dikii hierarchy is involved in the Landau-Ginsburg topological models (forAn-Series): the Casimirs for the first P.B. give the
The structure of theW∞ algebra
We prove rigorously that the structure constants of the leading (highest spin) linear terms in the commutation relations of the conformal chiral operator algebraW∞ are identical to those of the
The dispersionless Lax equations and topological minimal models
It is shown that perturbed rings of the primary chiral fields of the topological minimal models coincide with some particular solutions of the dispersionless Lax equations. The exact formulae for the
Representation theoretical meaning of the initial value problem for the Toda lattice hierarchy: I
The Toda lattice hierarchy is shown to have the Bruhat decomposition of the A∞ group as its parameter space instead of the Grassmann manifold for the KP hierarchy. Takasaki's work on the initial
