Stochastic Inflation: New ResultsJun 14 1994This is an old article which has never been posted for public use and which only appeard in a relatively hard-to-get Proceedings of the Sakharov Conference in Moscow (May, 1991). The subject of this article has received a lot of attention in last two ... More

Logarithmic Potential Model of Quigg and Rosner as a Generalization of Naive Quark ModelJun 26 2000Exploiting the explicit mass formulae for logarithmic potential model of Quigg and Rosner it is shown that at least on the level of mass-relations this model reproduces the naive quark model relations and generalizes the last one in case of highly non-trivial ...

Global anomaly and a family of structures on fold product of complex two-cyclesOct 27 2009We propose a new set of IIB type and eleven-dimensional supergravity solutions which consists of the $n$-fold product of two-spaces ${\bf H}^n/\Gamma$ (where ${\bf H}^n$ denotes the product of $n$ upper half-planes $H^2$ equipped with the co-compact action ...

Universal Racah matrices and adjoint knot polynomials. I. Arborescent knotsNov 29 2015By now it is well established that the quantum dimensions of descendants of the adjoint representation can be described in a universal form, independent of a particular family of simple Lie algebras. The Rosso-Jones formula then implies a universal description ... More

Proving AGT relations in the large-c limitSep 18 2009In the limit of large central charge $c$ the 4-point Virasoro conformal block becomes a hypergeometric function. It is represented by a sum of chiral Nekrasov functions, which can also be explicitly evaluated. In this way the known proof of the AGT relation ... More

The Power of Nekrasov FunctionsAug 15 2009The recent AGT suggestion to use the set of Nekrasov functions as a basis for a linear decomposition of generic conformal blocks works very well not only in the case of Virasoro symmetry, but also for conformal theories with extended chiral algebra. This ... More

p,q-Duality and Hamiltonian Flows in the Space of Integrable Systems or Integrable Systems as Canonical Transforms of the Free OnesJul 12 2001Jan 09 2002Variation of coupling constants of integrable system can be considered as canonical transformation or, infinitesimally, a Hamiltonian flow in the space of such systems. Any function $T(\vec p, \vec q)$ generates a one-parametric family of integrable systems ... More

On Renormalization Group in Abstract QFTMay 30 2000The basics of RG equations for generic partition functions are briefly reviewed, keeping in mind an application to the Polyakov-de Boer-Verlindes description of the holomorphic RG flow.
