The Hodge tau-function is a generating function for the linear Hodge integrals. It is also a tau-function of the KP hierarchy. In this paper, we first present the Virasoro constraints for the Hodge tau-function in the explicit form of the Virasoro equations. The expression of our Virasoro constraints is simply a linear combination of the Virasoro operators, where the coefficients are restored from a power series for the Lambert W function. Then, using this result, we deduce a simple version of… 
KP integrability of triple Hodge integrals. III. Cut-and-join description, KdV reduction, and topological recursions
In this paper, we continue our investigation of the triple Hodge integrals satisfying the Calabi–Yau condition. For the tau-functions, which generate these integrals, we derive the complete families
A connection between the Kontsevich-Witten and Brezin-Gross-Witten tau-functions
The Brezin-Gross-Witten model is one of the basic examples in the class of non-eigenvalue unitary matrix models. In the Kontsevich phase, it is a tau-function for the KdV hierarchy. In this paper we

We give a proof of Alexandrov's conjecture on a formula connecting the Kontsevich-Witten and Hodge tau-functions using only the Virasoro operators. This formula has been confirmed up to an unknown
KP hierarchy for Hurwitz-type cohomological field theories
Abstract. We generalise a result of Kazarian regarding Kadomtsev-Petviashvili integrability for single Hodge integrals to general cohomological field theories related to Hurwitz-type counting
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
KP integrability of triple Hodge integrals. II. Generalized Kontsevich matrix model
In this paper we introduce a new family of the KP tau-functions. This family can be described by a deformation of the generalized Kontsevich matrix model. We prove that the simplest representative of


Hodge integrals and Gromov-Witten theory
Integrals of the Chern classes of the Hodge bundle in Gromov-Witten theory are studied. We find a universal system of differential equations which determines the generating function of these

Mirzakhani's recursion relations, Virasoro constraints and the KdV hierarchy
We present in this paper a differential version of Mirzakhani's recursion relation for the Weil-Petersson volumes of the moduli spaces of bordered Riemann surfaces. We discover that the
Virasoro constraints for Kontsevich-Hurwitz partition function
In [1, 2] M.Kazarian and S.Lando found a 1-parametric interpolation between Kontsevich and Hurwitz partition functions, which entirely lies within the space of KP τ-functions. In [3] V.Bouchard and
Enumerative Geometry, Tau-Functions and Heisenberg–Virasoro Algebra
In this paper we establish relations between three enumerative geometry tau-functions, namely the Kontsevich–Witten, Hurwitz and Hodge tau-functions. The relations allow us to describe the
Polynomial recursion formula for linear Hodge integrals
We establish a polynomial recursion formula for linear Hodge integrals. It is obtained as the Laplace transform of the cut-and-join equation for the simple Hurwitz numbers. We show that the recursion
From Hurwitz Numbers to Kontsevich–Witten Tau-Function: A Connection by Virasoro Operators
In this letter, we present our conjecture on the connection between the Kontsevich–Witten and the Hurwitz tau-functions. The conjectural formula connects these two tau-functions by means of the GL(∞)
Hurwitz numbers, matrix models and enumerative geometry
We propose a new, conjectural recursion solution for Hurwitz numbers at all genera. This conjecture is based on recent progress in solving type B topological string theory on the mirrors of toric
Connecting the Kontsevich-Witten and Hodge Tau-functions by the $${\widehat{GL(\infty)}}$$GL(∞)^ Operators
It is shown that the two tau-functions can be connected using Virasoro operators, which proves a conjecture posted by Alexandrov in Letters in Mathematical physics.
The Gromov–Witten Potential of A Point, Hurwitz Numbers, and Hodge Integrals
Hurwitz numbers, which count certain covers of the projective line (or, equivalently, factorizations of permutations into transpositions), have been extensively studied for over a century. The
