Quantum Baxter-Belavin R-matrices and multidimensional lax pairs for Painlevé VI
Quantum elliptic R-matrices satisfy the associative Yang-Baxter equation in Mat(N)⊗2, which can be regarded as a noncommutative analogue of the Fay identity for the scalar Kronecker function. We present a broader list of R-matrix-valued identities for elliptic functions. In particular, we propose an analogue of the Fay identities in Mat(N)⊗2. As an application, we use the ℤN×ℤN elliptic R-matrix to construct R-matrix-valued 2N2×2N2 Lax pairs for the Painlevé VI equation (in the elliptic form) with four free constants. More precisely, the case with four free constants corresponds to odd N, and even N corresponds to the case with a single constant in the equation. © 2015, Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.
