Symmetry, Integrability and Geometry: Methods and Applications (SIGMA)


Special Issue on Elliptic Hypergeometric Functions and Their Applications

The Guest Editors for this special issue are

Michael J. Schlosser (University of Vienna, Austria)
Vyacheslav P. Spiridonov (JINR, Dubna, Russia)
S. Ole Warnaar (University of Queensland, Australia)


Topics for this special issue will include:

  • general theory of elliptic hypergeometric functions;
  • univariate and multivariate elliptic hypergeometric (bi-)orthogonal functions;
  • combinatorics of elliptic hypergeometric functions and applications in probability theory;
  • elliptic determinants and theta functions on root systems;
  • elliptic integrable systems, elliptic Painlevé equations and isomonodromy problems;
  • elliptic hypergeometric integrals and superconformal indices in quantum field theory;
  • applications in quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics.

This issue is partially related to the Workshop Elliptic Hypergeometric Functions in Combinatorics, Integrable Systems and Physics at the Erwin Schrödinger Institute for Mathematics and Physics in Vienna, Austria, in March 20–24, 2017.

Workshop participants and others whose work is concerned with the above topics are invited to submit papers to the special issue. For this issue, both original research articles and review papers are welcome.

There are no paper length limits to the submitted works. Deadline for the submission is January 31, 2018.

All articles will go through the standard peer reviewing procedure of SIGMA.
