This volume is a collection of papers presented at a special session on integrable systems and Riemann-Hilbert problems. Topics covered include discrete Painlevé equations, integrable nonlinear partial differential equations, random matrix theory, Bose-Einstein condensation, spectral and inverse spectral theory, and last passage percolation models. In most of these articles, the Riemann-Hilbert problem approach plays a central role, which is powerful both analytically and algebraically. The book is intended for graduate students and researchers interested in integrable systems and its applications.
Graduate students and researchers interested in integrable systems and its applications.
