Related to a property of gl(N|M) irreps with rectangular Young tableaux: = a s • Gauge symmetry s + s-1 s+1 a-1 a+1 Quantum (super)spin chains Quantum transfer matrices – a natural generalization of group characters Co-derivative – left differential w.r.t. group (“twist”) matrix: V.K., Vieira Main property: Transfer matrix (T-operator) of L spins R-matrix Hamiltonian of Heisenberg quantum spin chain: Master T-operator Generating function of characters: Master T-operator: It is a tau function of mKP hierachy: (polynomial w.r.t. the mKP charge ) Satisfies canonical mKP Hirota eq.

Tsuboi V.K.,Sorin,Zabrodin Gromov,Vieira Tsuboi,Bazhanov • Example: gl(2|2) Hasse diagram: hypercub • E.g. - bosonic QQ-rel. -- fermionic QQ rel • Nested Bethe ansatz equations follow from polynomiality of along a nesting path • All Q’s expressed through a few basic ones by determinant formulas • T-operators obey Hirota equation: solved by Wronskian determinants of Q’s Krichever,Lipan, Wiegmann,Zabrodin Wronskian solutions of Hirota equation • We can solve Hirota equations in a strip of width N in terms of differential forms of N functions . Solution combines dynamics of gl(N) representations and the quantum fusion: Gromov,V.K.,Leurent,Volin • -form encodes all Q-functions with indices: a s • E.g. for gl(2) : • Solution of Hirota equation in a strip: • For gl(N) spin chain (half-strip) we impose: Inspiring example: • Y-system principal chiral field Hirota dynamics in a in (a,s) strip of width N • Finite volume solution: finite system of NLIE: parametrization fixing the analytic structure: polynomials fixing a state Gromov, V.K., Vieira V.K., Leurent jumps by • From reality: • N-1 spectral densities (for L ↔ R symmetric states): SU(3) PCF numerics: Energy versus size for vacuum and mass gap V.K.,Leurent’09 E L/ 2 L Spectral AdS/CFT Y-system Gromov,V.K.,Vieira • Dispersion relation • Parametrization by Zhukovsky map: a • Extra “corner” equations: • cuts in complex s Type of the operator is fixed by imposing certain analyticity properties in spectral parameter. Dimension can be extracted from the asymptotics -plane Wronskian solution of u(2,2|4) T-system in T-hook Gromov,V.K.,Tsuboi Gromov,Tsuboi,V.K.,Leurent Tsuboi definitions: Plücker relations express all 256 Q-functions through 8 independent ones Gromov,V.K.,Leurent,Volin Solution of AdS/CFT T-system in terms of finite number of non-linear integral equations (FiNLIE) • Main tools: integrable Hirota dynamics + analyticity (inspired by classics and asymptotic Bethe ansatz) • Original T-system is in mirror sheet (long cuts) Arutyunov, Frolov • No single analyticity friendly gauge for T’s of right, left and upper bands. We parameterize T’s of 3 bands in different, analyticity friendly gauges, also respecting their reality and certain symmetries We found and checked from TBA the following relation between the upper and right/left bands Inspired by: Bombardelli, Fioravanti, Tatteo Balog, Hegedus • Irreps (n,2) and (2,n) are in fact the same typical irrep, so it is natural to impose for our physical gauge • From unimodularity of the quantum monodromy matrix Alternative approach: Balog, Hegedus Quantum symmetry Gromov,V.K. Leurent, Tsuboi Gromov,V.K.Leurent,Volin can be analytically continued on special magic sheet in labels Analytically continued each in its infinite strip. and satisfy the Hirota equations, Magic sheet and solution for the right band • The property suggests that certain T-functions are much simpler on the “magic” sheet, with only short cuts: • Only two cuts left on the magic sheet for ! • Right band parameterized: by a polynomial S(u), a gauge function with one magic cut on ℝ and a density Parameterization of the upper band: continuation • Remarkably, choosing the q-functions analytic in a half-plane we get all T-functions with the right analyticity strips! We parameterize the upper band in terms of a spectral density the “wing exchange” function and gauge function and two polynomials P(u) and (u) encoding Bethe roots The rest of q’s restored from Plucker QQ relations , Closing FiNLIE: sawing together 3 bands We have expressed all T (or Y) functions through 6 functions From analyticity of and we get, via spectral Cauchy representation, extra equations fixing all unknown functions Numerics for FiNLIE perfectly reproduces earlier results obtained from Y-system (in TBA form): Konishi operator : numerics from Y-system Beisert, Eden,Staudacher Gubser,Klebanov,Polyakov ABA Gubser Klebanov Polyakov From Y-system numerics Gromov,V.K.,Vieira (confirmed and precised by Frolov) quasiclassics Gromov,Shenderovich, Serban, Volin Roiban,Tseytlin Masuccato,Valilio Gromov, Valatka Leurent,Serban,Volin Bajnok,Janik zillions of 4D Feynman graphs!
