Title : "Painleve' equations and AGT correspondence"
Abstract : "In this talk I will introduce a correspondence between Painleve' equations and rank 1 four-dimensional N=2 theories (SU(2) SQCD and Argyres-Douglas theories). This correspondence, together with AGT, allows us to compute the partition function for these theories in different regimes; at the same time, it provides explicit expressions for all Painleve' tau-functions at short and/or large distance."
