Symmetry, Integrability and Geometry: Methods and Applications (SIGMA)


Special Issue on Elliptic Integrable Systems, Special Functions and Quantum Field Theory

The Guest Editors for this special issue are

Martin Hallnäs (Chalmers University of Technology and University of Gothenburg, Sweden)
Masatoshi Noumi (Kobe University, Japan)
Vyacheslav P. Spiridonov (JINR, Dubna and NRU HSE, Moscow, Russia)
S. Ole Warnaar (The University of Queensland, Australia)


Topics for this special issue will include:

  • elliptic hypergeometric series and integrals;
  • univariate and multivariate elliptic hypergeometric (bi-)orthogonal functions;
  • elliptic determinants and theta functions on root systems;
  • elliptic DAHA;
  • elliptic integrable systems, Painlevé equations and isomonodromy problems;
  • applications to superconformal indices and partition functions in quantum field theory and statistical mechanics;
  • applications in quantum mechanics, probability theory and combinatorics.

This issue is related to the Workshop Elliptic Integrable Systems, Special Functions and Quantum Field Theory (June 16–20, 2019, Nordita, Stockholm, Sweden).

Workshop participants and all other researchers whose work is concerned with the above topics are invited to submit papers to the special issue. Both, the original research articles and review papers will be considered.

How to Submit an Article to the Issue.

There are no paper length limits to the submitted works. The deadline for the submission to the special issue is February 29, 2020.

All articles will go through the standard peer reviewing procedure of SIGMA.

Papers can be submitted at any time after the announcement of this issue; if you have your paper ready, you can submit it and the reviewing process will start immediately. Papers will be published shortly after final acceptance by the editors. Each contribution will be indexed in the relevant databases as soon as it is published without waiting for the completion of the entire issue.
