In this paper we continue the study of the double ramification hierarchy of Buryak (Commun Math Phys 336(3):1085–1107, 2015). After showing that the DR hierarchy satisfies tau-symmetry we define its partition function as the (logarithm of the) tau-function of the string solution and show that it satisfies various properties (string, dilaton, and divisor equations plus some important degree constraints). We then formulate a stronger version of the conjecture from Buryak (2015): for any… 

Integrable Systems of Double Ramification Type

In this paper we study various aspects of the double ramification (DR) hierarchy, introduced by the 1st author, and its quantization. We extend the notion of tau-symmetry to quantum integrable

Tautological relations and integrable systems

. We present a family of conjectural relations in the tautological cohomology of the moduli spaces of stable algebraic curves of genus g with n marked points. A large part of these relations has a


In this paper, we formulate and present ample evidence towards the conjecture that the partition function (i.e. the exponential of the generating series of intersection numbers with monomials in

Quadratic double ramification integrals and the noncommutative KdV hierarchy

In this paper we compute the intersection number of two double ramification (DR) cycles (with different ramification profiles) and the top Chern class of the Hodge bundle on the moduli space of

DR/DZ equivalence conjecture and tautological relations

In this paper we present a family of conjectural relations in the tautological ring of the moduli spaces of stable curves which implies the strong double ramification/Dubrovin-Zhang equivalence

Cycles of curves, cover counts, and central invariants

The first topic of this dissertation is the moduli space of curves. I define half-spin relations, specialising Pandharipande-Pixton-Zvonkine’s spin relations, to reprove Buryak-Shadrin-Zvonkine’s

On tau-functions for the KdV hierarchy

For an arbitrary solution to the KdV hierarchy, the generating series of logarithmic derivatives of the tau-function of the solution can be expressed by the basic matrix resolvent via algebraic



Recursion Relations for Double Ramification Hierarchies

In this paper we study various properties of the double ramification hierarchy, an integrable hierarchy of hamiltonian PDEs introduced in Buryak (CommunMath Phys 336(3):1085–1107, 2015) using

Double Ramification Cycles and Quantum Integrable Systems

In this paper, we define a quantization of the Double Ramification Hierarchies of Buryak (Commun Math Phys 336:1085–1107, 2015) and Buryak and Rossi (Commun Math Phys, 2014), using intersection

Tautological relations and the r-spin Witten conjecture

A geometric interpretation of Y.P. Lee’s algorithm leads to a much simpler proof of the fact that every tautological relation gives rise to a universal relation, and implies that in any semi-simple Gromov–Witten theory where arbitrary correlators can be expressed in genus 0 correlators using only tautology relations, the formal and the geometric Gronov– Witten potentials coincide.

Rational reductions of the 2D-Toda hierarchy and mirror symmetry

We introduce and study a two-parameter family of symmetry reductions of the two-dimensional Toda lattice hierarchy, which are characterized by a rational factorization of the Lax operator into a

The structure of 2D semi-simple field theories

I classify the cohomological 2D field theories based on a semi-simple complex Frobenius algebra A. They are controlled by a linear combination of κ-classes and by an extension datum to the

BCFG Drinfeld–Sokolov hierarchies and FJRW-theory

According to the ADE Witten conjecture, which is proved by Fan, Jarvis and Ruan, the total descendant potential of the FJRW invariants of an ADE singularity is a tau function of the corresponding

Equivariant Gromov - Witten Invariants

The objective of this paper is to describe some construction and applications of the equivariant counterpart to the Gromov-Witten (GW) theory, i.e. intersection theory on spaces of (pseudo-)

Witten’s D4 integrable hierarchies conjecture

The authors prove that the total descendant potential functions of the theory of Fan-Jarvis-Ruan-Witten for D4 with symmetry group 〈J〉 and for D4T with symmetry group Gmax, respectively, are both
