problems of complex analysis

Abstract

The integrable structure, recently revealed in some classical problems of the theory of functions in one complex variable, is discussed. Given a simply connected domain in the complex plane, bounded by a simple analytic curve, we consider the conformal mapping problem, the Dirichlet boundary problem, and to the 2D inverse potential problem associated with the domain. A remarkable family of real-valued functionals on the space of such domains is constructed. Regarded as a function of infinitely many variables, which are properly defined moments of the domain, any functional from the family gives a formal solution to the problems listed above. These functions are shown to obey an infinite set of dispersionless Hirota equations. This means that they are τ-functions of an integrable hierarchy. The hierarchy is identified with the dispersionless limit of the 2D Toda chain. In addition to our previous studies, we show that, with a more general definition of the moments, this connection is not specific for any particular solution to the Hirota equations but reflects the structure of the hierarchy itself.
