Abstract It has been recently realized that, in the case of polynomial potentials, the exact WKB method can be reformulated in terms of a system of TBA equations. In this paper we study this method in various examples. We develop a graphical procedure due to Toledo, which provides a fast and simple way to study the wall-crossing behavior of the TBA equations. When complemented with exact quantization conditions, the TBA equations can be used to solve spectral problems exactly in Quantum… 
Exact WKB methods in SU(2) Nf = 1
We study in detail the Schrödinger equation corresponding to the four dimensional SU(2) N $$ \mathcal{N} $$ = 2 SQCD theory with one flavour. We calculate the Voros symbols, or quantum periods, in
WKB periods for higher order ODE and TBA equations
Abstract We study the WKB periods for the (r + 1)-th order ordinary differential equation (ODE) which is obtained by the conformal limit of the linear problem associated with the $$ {A}_r^{(1)} $$
Exact-WKB, complete resurgent structure, and mixed anomaly in quantum mechanics on S1
Abstract We investigate the exact-WKB analysis for quantum mechanics in a periodic potential, with N minima on S1. We describe the Stokes graphs of a general potential problem as a network of
TBA-like equations for non-planar scattering amplitude/Wilson lines duality at strong coupling
Abstract We compute the minimal area of a string worldsheet ending on two infinite periodic light-like Wilson lines in the AdS3 boundary, which is dual to the first non-planar correction to the

Exact-WKB analysis for SUSY and quantum deformed potentials: Quantum mechanics with Grassmann fields and Wess-Zumino terms
Quantum deformed potentials arise naturally in quantum mechanical systems of one bosonic coordinate coupled to N f Grassmann valued fermionic coordinates, or to a topological Wess-Zumino term. These


TBA equations and resurgent Quantum Mechanics
A bstractWe derive a system of TBA equations governing the exact WKB periods in one-dimensional Quantum Mechanics with arbitrary polynomial potentials. These equations provide a generalization of the
On exact-WKB analysis, resurgent structure, and quantization conditions
There are two well-known approaches to studying nonperturbative aspects of quantum mechanical systems: Saddle point analysis of the partition functions in Euclidean path integral formulation and the
TBA equations for the Schrödinger equation with a regular singularity
We derive the Thermodynamic Bethe Ansatz (TBA) equations for the Schrodinger equation with an arbitrary polynomial potential and a regular singular (simple and double pole) term. The TBA equations
Exact semiclassical expansions for one-dimensional quantum oscillators
A set of rules is given for dealing with WKB expansions in the one-dimensional analytic case, whereby such expansions are not considered as approximations but as exact encodings of wave functions,
A geometric approach to non-perturbative quantum mechanics
This work explores the connection between spectral theory and topological strings. A concrete example (the Y(3,0) geometry) of a conjectured exact relation between both based on mirror symmetry
Holomorphic Anomaly and Quantum Mechanics
We show that the all-orders WKB periods of one-dimensional quantum mechanical oscillators are governed by the refined holomorphic anomaly equations of topological string theory. We analyze in detail
The return of the quartic oscillator. The complex WKB method
The semi-classical treatment of the one-dimensional Schrodinger equation is made free from all approximation. For an analytic potential indeed, the WKB method in complex parameters can be formalized
Finite volume spectrum of 2D field theories from Hirota dynamics
We propose, using the example of the O(4) sigma model, a general method for solving integrable two dimensional relativistic sigma models in a finite size periodic box. Our starting point is the
Exact WKB and Abelianization for the $$T_3$$ Equation
We describe the exact WKB method from the point of view of abelianization, both for Schrodinger operators and for their higher-order analogues (opers). The main new example which we consider is the
Non-perturbative approaches to the quantum Seiberg-Witten curve
We study various non-perturbative approaches to the quantization of the Seiberg-Witten curve of ${\cal N}=2$, $SU(2)$ super Yang-Mills theory, which is closely related to the modified Mathieu
